Senate Lawmakers Address The Media Following Weekly Policy Luncheons

WASHINGTON, DC--Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer says he is very worried about the possibility of another government shutdown.

Speaking at the Capitol, Schumer said President Trump may provoke another shutdown as a "diversion" to take the spotlight off the House impeachment inquiry.

The government runs out of money on November 21st.Negotiators in the House and Senate are trying to craft a bipartisan deal to extend funding and the President would have to sign it.

This comes just after President Trump signed a short-term spending bill in September to extend government funding through November 21st.

The effort is to avoid another shutdown like the one that ended this past January, the longest shutdown in US History, leaving hundreds of thousands of federal workers furloughed for four weeks.
