WASHINGTON (KFVS) - Bipartisian legislation sent to the Senate to end the government shutdown was defeated on Thursday, January 24. It would have temporarily reopened the government.
The bill would replay federal workers for lost wages and is almost identical to the legislation the Senate passed in December.
Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) said it’s time to quit playing games.
Sen. Tammy Duckworth said the shutdown is leaving thousands of families in a bad situation.
