Day 1029

1/ House Democrats will support Speaker Mike Johnson’s stop-gap bill to keep the government open despite strong opposition from some conservatives members within Johnson’s party. The bill would fund some government departments until mid-January and the rest through early February, but it does not include spending cuts or policy changes that the House Freedom Caucus had demanded. Democrats, meanwhile, are dissatisfied that the measure doesn’t include emergency aid for Israel or Ukraine, and it also threatens a two-step shutdown next year. The House is expected to vote on the bill tonight, but it still needs to pass the Senate and be signed into law by Biden before midnight on Friday to avert a shutdown.
