Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have reached a deal on a power-sharing agreement for governing the upper chamber, according to POLITICO.

The final agreement on the so-called “organizing resolution” for the 50-50 Senate allows Democrats to take control of committees and comes after weeks of negotiation between the two leaders.

“ACPA is hopeful this agreement will lead to greater opportunities for bi-partisan support of key legislative initiatives in the 117th Congress,” says Leif Wathne, ACPA Executive Vice President.

A Senate vote on the resolution was pending at the time of this report.
