(Reuters) – U.S. Senate Republicans and Democrats are nearing an agreement on a short-term spending measure intended to avoid a US government shutdown on Oct. 1, Bloomberg reported on Monday, citing a person familiar with the talks.
Legislation would prolong funding for four to six weeks, according to the unnamed person. Some hard-line Republicans in the House of Representatives, however, are vowing to withhold votes for a stopgap.
