The conservative House Freedom Caucus and Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) are inching closer toward a deal to avert a shutdown and fund the government through Dec. 22, though some sticking points still remain.
Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and the group’s former leader, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), emerged from a meeting in Ryan’s office Wednesday morning saying they are making progress on a deal and have had productive discussions with leadership.
An announcement could be reached within “hours,” Meadows told reporters.
“We’re still working hard to try to get to an agreement. We’re making good progress,” he added. “Nothing’s decided yet.”
While the conservative bloc had pushed for a continuing resolution (CR) that funds the government past Christmas, they appear to be open to a spending bill through Dec. 22. Current funding for fiscal 2018 runs out Friday at midnight.
