While the House continues with its impeachment probe, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is looking to move several spending bills this week before the November 21 deadline to avoid a government shutdown. Last week McConnell filed cloture on the motion to proceed on two spending packages passed by the House earlier this year. The move would allow Republicans to include their own text to the bills and begin floor debate on some of the Senate's least controversial bills, which are included in the first package, H.R. 3055 for Interior-Environment appropriations. If that package can win bipartisan support, the Senate could then take up a more difficult second package, H.R. 2740, which includes the Energy-Water appropriations.
