The Senate Will Convene At 9:30 AM Today
Senate Session - January 24, 2019

On day 34 of the longest government shutdown in U.S. history over President Trump’s demand for a U.S.-Mexico border wall, the Senate blocked two plans to reopen the government. The first, supported by the president, would have funded the government through September 30, 2019, while providing money for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and a border wall. That bill failed 50-47. The second plan, offered by Democrats, would fund the government through February 8, 2019, but provide no money for a border wall. It failed 52-44, with six Republicans voting in favor. Both bills needed 60 votes to advance.
