House to vote on another short term funding bill; includes $6 billion in cuts

As soon as Tuesday, the House is expected to vote on a three-week Continuing Resolution (CR) that would cut more than $6 billion from current discretionary spending levels. The Senate is expected to vote later in the week. This latest CR will keep the government running through April 8 after the existing two-week CR expires on March 18th. This would be the sixth continuing resolution since the start of the current fiscal year on October 1. House conservatives are urging their leadership to make deeper cuts and defund the health care law as part of the CR. Negotiations continue between the Administration, House, and Senate leadership on completion of the FY 2011 appropriations.
