BATON ROUGE- Senator Bill Cassidy agrees with President Trump's proposal to end the partial government shutdown.

He said in a Facebook post that the plan is rational including a accumulation of bipartisan ideas that both Republicans and Democrats have supported in the past.

"The president’s new proposal is extremely reasonable. It’s a collection of bipartisan ideas that both Republicans and Democrats have supported in the past. It secures our border and ends the shutdown," said Cassidy.

Trump announced his plan Saturday afternoon during a press conference at the White House.

Trump says Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell will bring the proposal for a vote in the Senate this week. But Democrats, who control the House, are already saying they find the president's offer unacceptable.
