Congress is setting up another nail-biter over government spending, as the original plan from House Republicans to fund the Pentagon for the rest of fiscal 2018 and extend the current spending levels for civilian agencies into January has hit some roadblocks.
Now, House Republicans are discussing a new plan that would extend the continuing resolution through Jan. 19, Hoyer said. This version would not fund the Defense Department through the rest of fiscal 2018, as House lawmakers had originally discussed.
