Pelosi, Schumer support senate gov’t shutdown bill


With President Trump and Democratic legislators having found a temporary fix to end the month-long government shutdown, legislation to end future shutdowns is gaining bipartisan momentum and support in congress.

Ohio Senator Rob Portman’s “End Government Shutdowns Act,” a measure that would permanently keep the federal government from shutting down, has even garnered the support from the two individuals at the center of the shutdown negotiations, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D).

 “Now that the shutdown is over, we should roll up our sleeves and make sure it never happens again.” –Sen. Chuck Schumer
