Democrats move to suspend Senate rules to advance stalled spending bill
Senate Democrats on Monday moved to suspend the Senate’s rules to advance a stalled government funding bill after Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) objected to the legislation last week.
“Sen. Murray will move to suspend Rule XVI and file cloture on that motion,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) announced on the Senate floor.
“This is an effort to move forward on the minibus and keep the appropriations process on track here in the Senate,” he explained.
