House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) has told reporters at her weekly presser that she expects the lower chamber to receive the Continuing Resolution (CR) to keep the government funded through mid-December from the Senate on Tuesday.
- Pelosi: "Senate plans to act first on stopgap spending bill Tuesday night. If Senate cannot move forward, then House prepared to act on a stopgap bill to prevent shutdown."
- Pelosi refused to be drawn on Senator Joe Manchin's (D-WV) permitting reform proposal: "Let’s see what happens in the Senate and see what they send over to the House."
- Prospect of a government shutdown still remote. Most likely scenario will be scrapping of Manchin's permitting reform and pushing a clean CR through Congress.
- Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-ND) on whether Machin's proposal could get enough votes to pass the Senate: “Not even close.”
- Progressive Democrat Rep Jared Huffman (D-CA) confirmed he would vote no if permitting reform attached to the CR: "I have tried to show restraint in how I would vote. But it's crazy to include this in a CR & there is no way I would support it"
