FILE -- Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) listens during a news conference following the Democratic policy luncheon at the Capitol in Washington on Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2019. Schumer said, "voting for a series of largely radical, callow nominees is not what the country needs or what satisfies the vast majority of senators who came to Washington to legislate."

NEW YORK - The Senate's top Democrat said Sunday that congressional leaders have reached a "real breakthrough" deal to give 12 weeks of paid parental leave to millions of federal workers as part of the annual defense policy bill.

Sen. Charles Schumer said the agreement over the National Defense Authorization Act was reached late Friday night and a vote is expected later this week. The establishment of President Donald Trump's proposed Space Force is also included in the bill.
