House Democrats announce vote on temporary government spending bill this month

The House this month will vote on a temporary spending bill to keep the federal government funded past a Sept. 30 deadline, Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced Thursday.

Lawmakers have not come to agreement on fiscal 2020 spending bills after the process was delayed over how to set spending caps.

The House, led by Democrats, passed spending legislation, but Senate Republicans decided to wait until the two parties settled on a two-year spending caps deal reached earlier this summer.

Hoyer blamed Senate Republicans for failing to take up any appropriations measures but it was unlikely lawmakers would have escaped the need for a temporary funding measure, or continuing resolution.
