The U.S. Senate is currently debating whether to approve a spending bill, or to allow a federal government shutdown. The House approved a short term spending resolution earlier today, but it’s uncertain whether the Senate will pass a resolution as well. The Senate will vote on the House bill at 10pm ET. We have LIVE COVERAGE of the Senate debate and vote as we approach the 12:01 am deadline, at which point the government will shut down.
