U.S. lawmakers reach tentative deal to avoid government shutdown
Tuesday, 12 February 2019 11:45 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

U.S. congressional negotiators said late on Monday they had reached a tentative deal on border security funding that would avert another partial government shutdown due to start on Saturday, but provided no details.

œWe reached an agreement in principle on funding border security programs through Sept. 30, Republican Senator Richard Shelby told reporters.

œOur staffs are going to be working feverishly to put all the particulars together, Shelby said. He did not say whether President Donald Trump would get any money for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Asked if Trump had signed off on the pact, Shelby said the negotiators talked periodically with œWhite House representatives. Although not saying Trump had endorsed the outline, he added he thought and hoped the president could support the deal.

Trump™s December demand for $5.7 billion to help construct the border wall triggered a 35-day partial government shutdown that ended last month without him getting wall funding.

Trump agreed to reopen the government for three weeks to allow congressional negotiators time to find a compromise on government funding for the rest of the fiscal year, which ends on Sept. 30, to avert another shutdown.
