With no deal reached Sunday night, the Senate adjourned and will vote at noon Monday on a bill to reopen the government for at least three weeks.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) wanted to hold a vote at 10 p.m. Sunday, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) objected, saying there still wasn't a plan in place that works for Democrats and Republicans. Earlier in the day, more than 20 senators from both sides of the aisle met in the office of Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) to work on a plan that would provide funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program. Democrats have also said any bill that comes forward must address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The government shut down at midnight on Friday after McConnell was unable to get the 60 votes necessary for a bill to keep the government open for a month. On Monday, only federal employees deemed essential will go to work, and several services will be unavailable.
