House Republicans Say New Stopgap Spending Measure Is Needed


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va.—House Republicans are considering voting next week on a stopgap spending bill that would keep the government funded through late March, lawmakers and aides said Thursday.

The government’s current funding expires at 12:01 a.m. Feb. 9, and lawmakers have said they will need to pass another short-term spending bill to keep it running. Congress ended a three-day partial government shutdown last week with an agreement to keep it operating though Feb. 8 but have yet to reach a longer-term budget deal.
