“Congress is scrambling to lock down a deal on a mammoth funding bill and prevent the third shutdown of the year.  Lawmakers have until midnight Friday to pass the omnibus legislation or face the third partial closure of the government in as many months. House Republicans had hoped to vote on the bill last week in order to prevent a jam in the Senate after Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) refused to let leadership speed up consideration of a stopgap measure and forced an hours-long shutdown last month. But that timeline slipped amid last-minute jockeying over a host of issues… Republicans are insisting that a rule known as the Hyde Amendment, which restricts federal money from being used to fund abortion, be applied… [Sen. Richard] Shelby [R-AL] added that a final decision hadn’t been made about including border wall funding in the bill.”
