Bipartisan Group Suggests Deal Close on Shutdown

“A bipartisan group of roughly 20 senators are signaling they are nearing an agreement to reopen the government,” The Hill reports.

“The bipartisan group isn’t crafting separate legislation. Senators say the bulk of their talks were about how to get 60 votes for the bill to fund the government through Feb. 8 paired with a commitment that will satisfy Democrats on bringing up an immigration bill.”

“Senators predicted that Schumer and McConnell, who did not speak on Saturday, would be meeting shortly.”
