Senate Adjourns, Partial Government Shutdown Begins at Midnight

The Senate has adjourned until 12:00 noon on Saturday, December 22. Government funding will lapse at 11:59 p.m. tonight, triggering a partial shutdown. On Saturday, the Senate will resume consideration of the House-passed CR.

Should Congress and the President be unable to come to an agreement, by law, a new Congress must assemble on January 3rd at noon. If the government is still shut down then the House Democratic Majority may send a clean CR to the Senate, where it will likely pass with a veto proof majority.
