House Continues to Take Up Funding Bills

While the action in the Senate has been non-existent with respect to the shutdown, the House has been busy taking up and passing a host of bills to reopen the government.  None of the bills in the House has included funding for a border wall called for by the President.  The House action up to now has included passing individual bills as well as bundling them into a package.

Not surprisingly, the House action has not translated into Senate passage of any of the measures.
