How this will all work
The Senate still plans to vote on a standalone defense funding bill Thursday. They will get onto the bill, but the vote to proceed will fail.
- Then senators take up the House-passed continuing resolution. The preliminary vote on that will be Thursday, at which point they’ll strip the House language, and replace it with the Senate language.
- Then they’ll vote on that and kick it back to the House.
- Expect the House to vote on the measure to prevent a shutdown Thursday evening.
