On Friday, Congress was expected to pass a broad sweeping spending bill to keep the lights on at the White House next year. That didn’t happen. Instead, they took an extension and will likely try passing legislation again this week.

Senator Charles Grassley told “AgriTalk” host Mike Adams he thinks it will be Dec. 18 before anything gets done.  

“First of all the House hasn’t filed yet, but after it’s available they have to have 72 hours to read it,” he says. “Looks like the Senate might not have the bill until Wednesday. They hope they get done the 18th, but could be Saturday or Sunday.”

The bill will fund government spending from now until September 2016.
