Congress Could Close in on a Deal on Overall Government Funding This Week

Lawmakers say Congress could be closing in on a top-line deal on overall government funding for most of next year, as the House and Senate race to reach a compromise in time to avert a shutdown next month.  

Spending cardinals in both chambers Tuesday said they could receive a top-line spending level from leadership for Congress’s 12 annual government funding bills in the coming days, as Republicans and Democrats clamor to begin negotiations.
