Senate Reaches Deal To End Shutdown Three days into a partial government shutdown, the Senate has passed a bill to fund the government through February 8th. The bill does not include a fix for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which had been a key demand for many Democrats. But Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to bring DACA legislation up for a vote soon.
