WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) – The deadline for Congress to pass government funding is looming. They’re set to take a key vote on a spending bill on Tuesday night and need to pass it by Friday to avoid a shutdown. 

Both parties say they’re determined to avoid a government shutdown. 

“That’s not fair to the American public. The American public expects us to do our job up here,” Senator Rick Scott (R-Fla.) said. 

Right now, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) is proposing a stopgap spending measure called a continuing resolution. That bill would fund the government at current levels through mid-December and give more aid to Ukraine. 

The White House is urging lawmakers to find a solution. 

“To ensure that vital services to the American people continue uninterrupted,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. 

The funding bill needs the support of at least 60 senators, so there has to be some bipartisan compromise to avoid a shutdown.
