It's a showdown tonight on Capitol Hill.
We'll know within the hour if the federal government will shutdown.
Tonight, the Republican-controlled House of Representatives approved another emergency funding bill.
In a mostly partisan vote of 228 to 201 the House passed the measure that included a one-year delay of the individual mandate of the new health care law.
Within the hour of the House passing the resolution, the Democratically-controlled Senate voted along party lines 54-46 to table the continuing resolution passed by the House, effectively killing it.
The two chambers could not come to an agreement before midnight, meaning many parts of the federal government will shut down.
They recessed for the evening just after midnight, and vowed to meet again at 9:30 Tuesday morning.
