Senate Majority Leader Harry ReidHarry Mason ReidTrump presses GOP to change Senate rules Only thing Defense’s UFO probe proves is power of political favors Nevada Democrat accused of sexual harassment reconsiders retirement: report MORE (D-Nev.) has scheduled a vote on Friday for final passage of a continuing resolution that would fund the government.

Reid said the Senate would cast four votes starting at 12:30 p.m. The first vote will be to end debate on H.J. Res. 59, the House spending measure that funds the government through mid-December but defunds ObamaCare.

The Senate will then vote to waive a budget point of order and amend the measure before final passage.

The one amendment in order would restore the funding for ObamaCare, reduce the time the measure funds the government by one month and remove House language that prioritizes federal spending in the event of the government defaulting later this fall.

“I’m sorry that we’re going to have to vote tomorrow and not today,” Reid said. “The House is waiting for us to do something.”

The government will shut down Oct. 1 if Congress doesn't approve some a government funding measure.

The Senate is expected to send the funding bill back to the House this weekend. The House would then have to accept the Senate changes or risk a government shutdown as time runs out.
