House to Vote on CR Today

The House is set to vote today on a continuing resolution that would keep the government funded through Wednesday, in order to give the Senate more time to reach a deal on the $410 billion omnibus spending bill.The vote is expected near midday and is expected to be adopted quickly by the Senate. The existing CR expires tonight. The House Rules Committee rejected a Republican proposal to extend the CR to May 1.Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has repeatedly rejected the idea of reopening negotiations on the omnibus spending measure, which faces continuing opposition from most Republicans and some conservative Democrats upset with the level of spending and the number of earmarks.
