Congressional negotiators reach deal on government funding through September

CNN/Manu Raju & Ted Barrett/05-01-17

Bipartisan congressional negotiators reached a critical agreement late Sunday on a massive spending bill that if approved by the House and Senate would fund the government through the end of September, senior aides from both parties told CNN.

The plan would add billions for the Pentagon and border security but would not provide any money for President Donald Trump’s promised border wall with Mexico.

Votes in both chambers are expected by the end of the week.
