OMB tells agencies to start notifying employees of possible lapse in appropriations

Senior officials with the Office of Management and Budget said these changes would be proposed as part of President Donald Trump's 2019 budget plan, to be released Monday.

To that end, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi staged a record eight-hour speech arguing in favor of legislation for young immigrants in the country since childhood who face deportation.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said the measure would rewrite existing defense limits that have "hamstrung our armed forces and jeopardized our national security".

But, since it was largely over a weekend, many government agencies and services were not affected.

"There technically would be a government shutdown at midnight but no one would notice until about 9 o'clock the next morning", Collender said.

More proof that Trump's own White House isn't paying any attention to him came when the White House released a statement saying that Trump would sign the budget deal, days after Trump himself said he would support shutting down the government.

Multiple Teams Still Engaged in Talks for Tyreke Evans
However, Danny Ainge is reportedly "holding the line on what be believes is proper value" to the frustration of teams. According to ESPN.com , the Celtics are among four teams favored to land Evans before the deadline.

"Given that the Senate still has not passed its bipartisan agreement because Senate Republicans are feuding, time is running short for them to keep the government's lights on", Hoyer said in a statement.

U.S. lawmakers are expected to unveil "a good, bipartisan deal" on Wednesday that would raise current limits on federal spending for two years, the White House said, as Congress seeks to end fights over spending that have plagued Washington for months.

The White House backs the Senate deal. Republicans are eager to keep spending and immigration separate. But now, he says, Republicans and Democrats are "spending us into oblivion". Rand Paul repeatedly held up votes on the budget plan, protesting its likely contribution to budget deficits that are soon to top $1 trillion.

The deal brokered by Senate leaders would shower the Pentagon and domestic programs with an extra $300 billion over the next two years.

A group of hard-right House conservatives opposes the big budget deal emerging in Congress, but the group's leader says he expects it to pass anyway because of increases in defense and other spending that will appeal to many lawmakers.
