ON CAPITOL HILL: Possible government shutdown looming

Posted: Updated:

Congress has until midnight tonight to pass a spending bill to keep the government open, but it may be only for a week.

House majority leaders said last night Republicans would push a short-term spending bill through today. The bill would keep government agencies running for another week.

Lawmakers still have not been able to reach a deal on a trillion-dollar plan to keep the government open through September, which is when the fiscal year ends.
