McConnell: Senate Will Not Consider House Bills To End Shutdown

(Washington, DC) - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is laying out his requirements for considering any House bill to end a government shutdown.  

Speaking on the Senate floor, the Kentucky Republican sounded off against Democratic plans in the House to pass measures that would end a partial shutdown without providing funding for a border wall.

 

The White House is demanding that any spending bill include several billion dollars in funding for the wall, something Democrats see as a none-starter.  

McConnell said the measures House Democrats are planning to pass will not be a serious contribution to efforts to end the shutdown.
