US government shutdown looms as Senate rejects funding bill

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (C) listens to questions from the media after a policy luncheon on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC on September 27, 2016The US Senate rejected stopgap legislation to fund government operations on Tuesday, sending lawmakers scrambling to stave off a shutdown at week’s end in the heat of the presidential campaign. Should Congress fail to pass a bill approving federal spending — or in this case, extending existing spending levels until December 9 — by midnight Friday, some government offices and operations could shutter. Several Democrats voted against the government funding bill apparently because they objected to its provision of money for Louisiana emergency flood relief without providing any infrastructure funding for Flint.
