President Donald Trump might make his decision on a partial government shutdown by Monday night.
Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., chairman of the Appropriations Committee, said he spoke with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., about "how to resolve our dilemma," The Hill reported.
Friday is the deadline for a deal to fund about 25 percent of the government.
In a separate talk with reporters, Shelby said the decision could be between "whether to work on some things and get a resolution this week or do a [continuing resolution] into February," The Hill reported.
He added, however, there could be "other options" as well.
"There are ongoing negotiations – not just on the wall but other things," Shelby said, The Hill reported.
