The Senate on Thursday passed a massive spending bill that will fund the Departments of Defense, Labor, Education, and Health and Human Services Departments for fiscal 2019, in the hopes of quickly wrapping up their rare August work session in Washington.

The only thing left they need to do is work out a deal to consider a long list of Trump administration nominees. If they can reach a deal Thursday, the Senate would not have to convene next week, which was supposed to be its final week at work this month.

The article goes on to state the following:

Senators were expected to stay at work Thursday evening in the hopes of working out an arrangement on nominations. If a deal is there, the Senate would not be expected to return until after Labor Day, when the House is also scheduled to reconvene.

Staying in session this month has put the Senate in a position in which it has now passed nine of the 12 federal spending bills, which will help Congress avoid a year-end funding fight. That’s a big improvement from 2018, when the Senate passed no spending bills on time — the Senate had not passed a Labor, Health and Human Services bill on time in 15 years.

“This is a milestone here today,” said Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby, R-Ala.
