"Congress Enters Pivotal Week On Spending"

"How to prevent a looming potential government shutdown will dominate the conversation on Capitol Hill this week, with the House and Senate considering divergent strategies for keeping agencies running.

Both chambers are moving forward with consideration of full year, fiscal 2024 bills under what leaders call regular order, in keeping with demands from House Republicans.

But the House GOP’s right flank is not only objecting to spending levels in those bills; it also wants deep policy concessions before supporting stopgap legislation to give lawmakers more time to resolve their differences."
