House moderates, conservatives strike deal to avoid government shutdown

Sep 18, 2023 | Political News

Two key factions of the House Republican Conference – the conservative House Freedom Caucus and the moderate Main Street Caucus – struck a deal over the weekend to avoid a government shutdown at the end of the month.

The deal, known as a continuing resolution and that will keep the government running for at least a month, cuts discretionary spending for the duration and retains much of the conference's bill to change border policies.
