House moderates, conservatives strike deal to avoid government shutdown
The deal, known as a continuing resolution and that will keep the government running for at least a month, cuts discretionary spending
Two key factions of the House Republican Conference – the conservative House Freedom Caucus and the moderate Main Street Caucus – struck a deal over the weekend to avoid a government shutdown at the end of the month.
The deal, known as a continuing resolution and that will keep the government running for at least a month, cuts discretionary spending for the duration and retains much of the conference's bill to change border policies.
"The two sides have come to an agreement, and House leadership supports it," a leadership source with direct knowledge of the negotiations told Just the News on Monday morning. "But we still must check to see where the rest of the conference is on the deal, but they moving in the right direction."
If all sides agree, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy could reportedly put the bill on the floor this week.
However, the measure faces long odds in the Democratic-controlled Senate and being signed into law by President Biden.
