A “SWAT team” of eight House GOP lawmakers has begun meeting to strike a last-ditch deal on a fiscal 2017 budget, Republican Study Committee Chairman Bill Flores (R-Texas) told The Hill on Monday.

It’s just the latest attempt to jump-start a budget process that many on Capitol Hill have left for dead.

“Earlier this month, I recommended that Speaker Ryan put together a small team of interested individuals with disparate views to develop a path forward to get a budget on the floor,” Flores said during an interview in his Capitol Hill office.

“That team has been formed and we are working on that,” he added.
