Lawmakers May Need to Agree on Bill by Friday to Avoid Government Shutdown

Although lawmakers have a deadline of Feb 15 to agree on a bill, They say they need to come to an agreement by this Friday at morning to give the house and senate enough time to pass it.

If an agreement isn’t reached by the deadline, President Trump has said he might declare a national emergency to fund a border barrier.

However, House Democrats could push forward a resolution of disapproval, which could end up blocking the president’s declaration.
