Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., with the agreement of Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., has scheduled votes for Thursday on proposals to end the government shutdown. The two votes – one a Republican proposal, one a Democratic proposal – are expected to fail but set the stage for further negotiations.
