Author of the article:



WASHINGTON — The U.S. Senate was aiming to finish work on Thursday on a bill that would eliminate the threat of federal agency shutdowns on Saturday by extending expiring federal funding through Dec. 16, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

“With a little more good-faith negotiation between Democrats and Republicans, I am hopeful that today’s the day we’ll finish passing a continuing resolution to fund the government,” Schumer said in a Senate speech. (Reporting by Richard Cowan)
