Lawmakers are scrambling to avoid a government shut down and to pass the annual government full-year funding bill.

According to reports, leadership in both the House and Senate are mulling over the possibility of a week-long stopgap bill, known as a continuing resolution.

The December 11 deadline to pass the legislation is quickly approaching. Lawmakers are considering to include a long-awaited COVID relief in the funding bill to expedite the lengthy negotiation process.

“Again, we want to have it on the omnibus,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said. “And we’re hoping that that will accelerate the discussion on the omnibus, so we are going to keep the government open.”

The continuing resolution would extend the congressional lame-duck timeline, changing it to December 18.
