"Congress Returns To Overflowing Fall Agenda"

"The Senate returns from summer recess Tuesday facing an impasse on federal spending that could result in a government shutdown, with billions of dollars needed for disaster relief on the line.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) outlined his outlook for the coming work period in a letter to fellow Democrats released Friday.

“[O]ur focus will be on funding the government and preventing House Republican extremists from forcing a government shutdown,” he said."
