Re-open the government one agency at a time?

in Uncategorized by

House Republican leaders told rank-and-file members that they will attempt to pass several separate bills to reopen the government a few agencies at a time, Roll Call reports.

A GOP aide confirmed that leaders want next steps to include passage of a series of continuing resolutions that fund individual government programs — an idea floated by Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday. The substance and sequence of those bills has not been determined, but they would not include extraneous policy riders regarding Obamacare and would allow some key federal operations to resume while larger negotiations continue surrounding the fiscal 2014 funding.
