A second 2018 government shutdown looms Thursday

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

The House of Representatives and Senate have until midnight to pass a budget deal, or the federal government will go into another shutdown.

The Senate's Republican and Democratic leaders say they've reached a breakthrough on a two-year budget deal that would boost spending on both military and domestic programs, while ending mandatory spending caps known as the "sequester."

Top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi says she won't back it without language to protect young undocumented 'Dreamers' and the DACA program.
