The federal government is back in business as an agreement was reached on a temporary spending bill late Monday.

Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley says the next few weeks will be focused on finding a compromise on immigration.

He says it’s more than just DACA, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which was enacted during the Obama administration.

OC………….diversity visas. :16

The spending bill that passed will only keep the government running for three weeks and Grassley says he’s optimistic an agreement can be reached before February 8th.

OC……will sign. :08

Grassley, a Republican, makes it clear who he believes is to blame for the three-day closure of all non-essential federal offices and services, which took effect at midnight last Friday.

OC…..”near future” :09

Democratic Iowa Congressman Dave Loebsack says the shutdown was the result of the inability to compromise and that the whole disaster shows just how broken Washington really is.
