WASHINGTON (MNI) - U.S. House Democrats want to present a resolution Monday
that would avoid a government shutdown by extending funding to Dec. 20, a
spokesman for Representative Nita Lowey told MNI.
A formal announcement from Congress may come out sometime later today,
spokesman Evan Hollander wrote in an email.
The bill will extend funding for the 12 annual spending bills, extending
the deadline to prevent a government shutdown.
House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer first announced announced a pending vote
on a stopgap spending bill last week, saying the Senate needed more time to
finish passing the remaining outstanding appropriations bills for the 2020
fiscal year. His goal is to "fully fund the government before the end of the
year," according to a letter he issued last week.
