Democratic senators participated in a briefing call Monday night on the latest developments in the negotiations and a vote is expected as soon as Tuesday.

The article goes on to state the following:

Schumer provided an optimistic update on the Senate floor after his fourth meeting of the day with Mnuchin, which ended shortly before 9 p.m.

“Secretary Mnuchin just left my office,” Schumer said. “We have had some very good discussions, and in fact the list of outstanding issues has narrowed significantly.”

“As he left Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office after 40 minutes, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said: ‘We are really cutting down the list of issues, we hope to get this done today,’ ” Manu Raju, a Senior Congressional Correspondent with CNN, reported via Twitter. “Mnuchin and WH aide Eric Ueland then went into Mitch McConnell’s office.”
