Government shutdown looms as deadline approaches

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

A government shutdown still remains a very real possibility, despite some movement on Capitol Hill.

The Republican-controlled house passed a temporary funding bill that would keep the government open for another month Thursday night.

The approval was brought about by an 11th-hour deal that got conservatives on board, but now the Senate must approve it.

The deadline to approve it is midnight Friday.
