GOP moves to prevent shutdown with stopgap spending bill

ㅤ"Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said Wednesday he will move a stopgap measure funding the government until early February.
ㅤThe measure if passed by Congress and signed into law by President Trump would prevent a partial shutdown set to begin Saturday and would fund government departments and agencies through Feb. 8.
ㅤIt will keep funding for border fencing flat and punt a showdown on that issue until next year — when Trump will have less leverage with Democrats in control of the House. McConnell warned that Trump has no intention of dropping the issue."
