The House plans to take up stopgap legislation Tuesday that would avoid a partial shutdown of the government when temporary funding runs out Friday.
The measure would buy time for the Republican House, Democratic
Senate and the White House to try to reach agreement on longer-term
legislation to fund the government through the end of the budget
The Senate is likely to go along despite concerns that it'll take longer than two weeks to reach agreement.
Republicans want to slash a whopping $60 billion-plus from
agency budgets over the coming months but are settling for just $4
billion in especially easy cuts as the price for the two-week stopgap bill.
