NFIB Weekly NewsBusiness Climate Senate Approves Temporary Spending Bill, Avoiding Shutdown For Now (10/01/2019)
The AP (9/26, Taylor) reported that with an 82-15 vote, the Senate “passed a temporary government-wide funding bill...that staves off the risk of a government shutdown through Nov. 21.” The legislation “would buy additional time for lawmakers to work to unclog a $1.4 trillion bundle of yearly spending bills that is hung up amid fights over President Donald Trump’s border wall and abortion.” The New York Times (9/26, Cochrane) quoted Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer as saying of the vote, “That’s the easy part. The hard part is getting a bipartisan appropriations process back on track.”
