They scheduled a closed-door session Monday evening to brief House GOP lawmakers on a way to pass a stopgap funding bill that could last through March 23 to buy time for progress in implementing any follow-up budget pact and, perhaps, pass immigration legislation. The bill also would strengthen border security, but it wouldn't provide the $25 billion Trump wants for a U.S. -Mexico border wall.

Rep. Bil Huizenga (R-MI) said argued that adding defense funding remains the only way to to get enough Republican votes to pass through the House without Democratic support. The budget agreement has also been stalled due to unrelated policy disputes, primarily over immigration.

The budget negotiations, conducted chiefly by the Senate's top leaders, Republican Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and Chuck Schumer of NY, have intensified in recent days - and the looming government shutdown at midnight Thursday added urgency to the talks. "We're standing up and saying we must do both. That's how this body works".

Scalise noted the House has passed 2018 defense appropriations multiple times, yet the Senate has failed to pass the measure.

Republicans in the House will reportedly pitch a plan that includes funding the military for a year and the rest of the government for a shorter period to prevent a government shutdown this week.

House Republicans will pass their continuing resolution defense funding bill Tuesday and send it to the Senate.

Votes on amendments to that legislation are expected to take place next week. Once they have an agreement, appropriators would need about a month to assemble all 12 spending bills into a final omnibus package.

"One CR after another, at some point you have to say this is not working", he said.

"We're going to have to compromise unless we elect more Republicans", Mr. Trump said in remarks at the annual retreat for GOP lawmakers in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. "They want to do it their way or no way".

"We have to break that cycle of dysfunction", Meadows said. "We'll be here to vote if we need to vote".

The news about the government shutdown in the USA last month may have come as a surprise to you.

Rep. Mark Walker, who chairs the influential Republican Study Committee, rejected the notion that pushing through a spending bill the Senate is sure to dismiss is merely an exercise.

"I know there continues to be discussions on the spending caps and I'm hoping that dam will break and we can get a lot of this overdue business taken care of", Sen.

"DACA has been an extraordinary success", said Illinois Senator Dick Durbin. "But I do see a promise by Senator McConnell to finally bring this critical issue that affects the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in America, finally bringing it to a full debate in the Senate".

If a budget deal is reached this week, the spending committees could get to work writing the actual legislation funding the government through September 30 - setting up another must-pass bill in March. The situation particularly infuriates defense hawks, who argue the Pentagon is being deprived of necessary resources.

The vote is meant to demonstrate that a six-week spending measure expected from the House that would fund military programs for a full year does not have enough votes to pass the Senate, according to a senior Senate aide familiar with internal deliberations.

Democrats want any long-term funding increase to bump defense and non-defense spending equally, while the GOP wants a much larger increase for defense. "I'm optimistic that very soon we'll be able to reach an agreement".

According to senior aides - and lawmakers - in both parties, in both chambers, no.
