House Must Pass Senate Bill to Avert Shutdown

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said that the Senate "is done acting on legislation to avert a government shutdown, and that House Republicans have no choice but to pass the Senate's bill if it wants to keep the government open," The Hill reports.

Said Reid: "I want everyone to listen and to hear: the United States Senate has acted. This is the only legislation that can avert a government shutdown, and that time is ticking as we speak."

He added: "If Speaker Boehner wants to avoid a government shutdown, he will pass our resolution. Otherwise, it's a government shutdown."
