CongressHouse Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) has said the chamber’s appropriators are considering a stopgap budget measure that would keep the government funded at current levels, Federal Times reported Tuesday.

Andy Medici writes Hoyer told reporters that House Appropriations Committee Chairman Harold Rogers (R-Ky.) and Ranking Member Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) have discussed a continuing resolution that aligns with a spending deal that was passed in December.
