  • House Republicans under the leadership of Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) are preparing yet another temporary spending band-aid (continuing resolution) in order to avert a Nov. 18 government shutdown, which they could vote on as early as this week, lawmakers said following a meeting with Johnson.
  • 3) Negotiate with the Senate. One option that Johnson is floating internally — and it seems like the least likely to us — is to have House Republicans try to see if they can get a CR deal with the Senate while still working to pass individual spending bills.
  • Johnson and party leaders will meet Tuesday morning behind closed doors to discuss options, with the intention of averting the internal dissent that tripped up Kevin McCarthy.
  • The Democratic reaction to the stopgap proposal will hinge on whether Republicans demand offsetting spending cuts or other policy provisions. House Caucus Chair Pete Aguilar (D-CA) wasn't too hot on the idea.
