Live updates: House to vote on GOP plan to avert government shutdown – best news

  • November 14, 2023

The House is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a bill that would avert a government shutdown Saturday, presenting a major test for new Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.), who has faced competing demands from different factions in his party. The bill would fund some government departments until mid-January and the rest through early February. It does not include spending cuts or policy changes that Republican hard-liners sought. A shutdown would leave legions of federal employees without pay just before the Thanksgiving holiday.
