House Plans Shutdown Votes as Senators Meet to Seek Compromise

House Plans Shutdown Votes as Senators Meet to Seek CompromiseThe meeting on Monday didn’t appear to produce any conclusion, and President Donald Trump has indicated he wouldn’t sign a stopgap without the funding he’s demanding for a wall on the Mexico border, suggesting there’s no clear resolution in sight. The measures are unlikely to gain GOP support and advance in the Senate because they don’t contain the $ 5.7 billion in wall funding sought by Trump. The funding bills “offer President Trump and Senate Republicans additional options to end the shutdown while allowing time for negotiation on border security and immigration policy,” said Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Nita Lowey, a New York Democrat.
