WASHINGTON (AP) - The top Democrat in the Senate says the White
House and Republicans have agreed on a spending cut of $38 billion
but a fight over federal dollars for Planned Parenthood is blocking
a deal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada told reporters
Friday he's cautiously optimistic after late night talks at the White House, but the budget dispute also has become a moving target.

Failure to reach an agreement moved the government closer to a shutdown at midnight Friday.
Reid criticized the Republican stand on Planned Parenthood.

The GOP contends it has not reached an agreement on spending cuts.

  • New study of Seattle's $15 minimum wage says it costs jobs

    Monday, June 26 2017 12:25 PM EDT2017-06-26 16:25:52 GMT

    SEATTLE, Wash. - A new study of Seattle's $15-an-hour minimum wage law says it costs jobs, contrary to another new study released last week. The Seattle Times reports a University of Washington team found the law boosted pay in low-wage jobs since 2014  but that it also caused a 9 percent reduction in hours worked. For an average low-wage Seattle worker, that's a loss of about $125 per month.
