Lawmakers are returning to Capitol Hill this week with just a handful of days to strike a deal to fund the government. Parts of the government will shut down Friday night if Congress fails to act.

With a full shutdown possible by March 8, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Sunday said leaders had not yet reached a compromise on spending bills, blaming House Republicans for the delay.
