Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), a key player in the border negotiations, sounded upbeat about the bipartisan compromise brokered Monday night, calling it “certainly good news.”

“I know I speak for members on both sides of the aisle when I say we are grateful to our colleagues on the appropriations committee for their leadership,” McConnell said Tuesday on the Senate floor. “We’re eager to see them complete this work.”

“As we speak, our colleagues are working hard to produce a legislative text,” he continued. “I look forward to reviewing the full text as soon as possible and hope the Senate can act on this legislation in short order.”




McConnell saying that he hopes the Senate can act on the legislation is significant: during the shutdown, he refused to bring legislation to the floor unless Trump would definitely sign it.

2. Does this mean he can get additionl GOPers to help to override a veto?



I think 6 or 7 were against the previous shutdown and had approved the current CR so would need about as many more to hit 67 just in case.
