Republicans Toil To Reach Deal To Avert Shutdown



Congressional Republicans continued efforts to reach an agreement on a temporary extension of government funding in order to avert a shutdown. Republicans are hoping to avoid the politically embarrassing shutdown despite mixed signals from President Donald Trump on the stopgap plan. Trump recently criticized a plan to win democratic support with a six year extension of funding for the CHIP program, the White House later said the president fully supported the proposal. Democrats have also insisted that a long-term spending bill include measures which cover “DREAMERS.” The republican controlled congress is now operating on its third temporary funding extension since October first.
