Another Vote to Avert U.S. Shutdown

The U.S. House will take up a short-term spending bill next week to fund federal government operations past Jan. 15, House Appropriations Chairman Hal Rogers said.

The spending bill would provide funding at current levels for three days, through Jan. 18, Rogers said. He said he will introduce the short-term bill today and the House may vote on it as soon as Jan. 13. Government funding expires Jan. 15.

“We expect this short extension will pass with bipartisan support,” said Matt Dennis, a spokesman for House Appropriations Committee Democrats.
