US House Republicans aim to release shutdown-averting measure Saturday

Republicans in control of the U.S. House of Representatives are preparing to release a stopgap spending measure to prevent a partial government shutdown. The measure aims to keep federal agencies open beyond the expiration of current funding next Friday. The details of the release and the form of the measure are still uncertain, according to an anonymous source.

U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson, who leads the slim Republican majority, has been engaged in discussions with fellow Republicans about various options for the continuing resolution (CR). Both the Republican-controlled House and the Democratic-led Senate must agree on a CR that President Joe Biden can sign into law before the current funding expires on November 17.

As the deadline for a potential shutdown approaches, some Republicans are advocating for a “clean” CR that extends until mid-January without any spending cuts or conservative policy riders that Democrats oppose. However, hardline conservatives are pushing for a measure that includes spending cuts, tighter security at the U.S.-Mexico border, and an unconventional structure with staggered deadlines for different segments of the federal budget.

Many lawmakers are warning that a prolonged partisan dispute over the stopgap measure could hinder Congress from averting a shutdown. Meanwhile, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer has taken an initial procedural step to advance his own stopgap measure while House Republicans deliberate their options.
