House Republicans are trying to build support among themselves for a stopgap spending bill that would fund the government through October, as NBC News and others reported. The draft measure released Sunday night also includes conservative policy riders such as border security language.
Democrats oppose it, and almost immediately, several conservative Republicans came out against it, too.
“For months, I have made it very clear that I will not be supporting a CR. And this week is no different,” Rep. Matt Rosendale (R-Mont.) wrote on X.
On a Sunday night call, House Majority Leader Steve Scalise (R-La.) told his Republican colleagues the House will vote on the defense appropriations bill Wednesday and the continuing resolution Thursday, according to Punchbowl News. House leaders have tried twice to vote on the defense spending bill but delayed it both times when it seemed they wouldn’t have the votes.
