House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week on a stopgap spending bill aimed at avoiding a government shutdown on Oct. 1.
Aides said the GOP has not yet come up with a final draft for the bill.
A continuing resolution (CR) that simply extends current funding for two to three months has been a leading option for a while, but final decisions on the CR will await the return of members next week to Washington from their August recess, aides said.
A measure that spends at the current rate but does not seek the deeper cuts envisioned in the House-passed budget is seen as likely.
House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.), in a fall agenda memo issued Friday, highlighted the advantages of a CR that enshrines the current level of spending, which has been automatically reduced due to sequestration. He did not say such a "clean CR" is definitely coming to the floor without other policy riders, however, such as the complete defunding of ObamaCare.
