House Republicans Aim to Increase Pressure on Senate with New Funding Measure

House Republicans “are drafting a short-term measure funding government at reduced levels to bring up and pass next week in order to avoid a government shutdown,” The Hill reports.

The House GOP intends to unveil a resolution later this week that would continue funding the government past the March 4 deadline on which the government would run out of money, and face a shutdown.

Republicans hope to pass the resolution, which will include cuts from current spending at a level that’s to-be-determined, early next week in order to put the onus on the Senate to act, or risk a government shutdown.
