Temporary federal funding measures passed this weekend only extend the government’s funding through Monday night, and news outlets reported that the Senate’s vote was expected to drag on late into Monday night.

The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act would designate the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority to design and implement uniform national horse racing medication and racetrack safety standards, overseen by the Federal Trade Commission with the enforcement of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
