House Plans Spending Vote To Stop Another Shutdown

Politico reports:

The House will pass a stopgap spending measure the week of Nov. 18, hoping to thwart a government shutdown later that week, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Friday. The leader did not say how long that next patch would last.

In a “Dear Colleague” letter, Hoyer noted that the action is “necessary” since government funding expires on Nov. 21 and congressional leaders are still trying to crack stalled negotiations on spending levels for a dozen fiscal 2020 bills.

The White House has indicated that President Donald Trump will sign a continuing resolution as long as it does not impose new limits on border wall funding.
