The House Rules Committee voted Wednesday to approve a six-month continuing resolution extending government funding through March 27, Federal Times reports.
H J Res 117 now goes before the full chamber and a vote could take place sometime Thursday, Stephen Losey reports.
The panel also approved a bill to undo defense cuts under sequestration scheduled to take effect in January.
At a July meeting between Defense Department officials and industry executives, attendees outlined one possible scenario where Congress could delay those cuts through a continuing resolution.
The government could also have only cuts under the first and second years of sequestration as opposed to the full decade under that scenario.
