House Passes Bill That Would End Shutdown
Senate unlikely to take it up
The U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday passed legislation to end a partial shutdown of the Treasury Department and some other agencies, but without any money for President Donald Trump's border wall.
By a vote of 240-188 along mostly partisan lines, the House passed the bill and sent it to the Republican-controlled Senate as part of Democrats' latest strategy to end partial government shutdowns at many federal agencies that began on Dec. 22.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has not indicated a willingness to bring the bill up for a vote.
