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