The bill would extend current levels of spending for agencies past the Sept. 30 end of the fiscal year through Dec. 11. But it doesn’t include $30 billion for farm aid that the White House had sought and which Democrats want to negotiate as part of separate stimulus negotiations, according to aides in both parties.

The stopgap funding bill, known as a continuing resolution, had been the subject of negotiations among Democratic and Republican congressional leaders along with the White House, and other aspects of the legislation were said to be resolved.

Both sides indicated they wanted to avoid a government shutdown just weeks before the election.

“We do prefer additional farm aid in the CR. Most of all we want a clean CR, keep the government open,” Larry Kudlow, President Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser, told reporters Monday.

Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week” program Sunday that “None of us has any interest in shutting down government.”

Stopgap bill to prevent shutdown held up over farm funding

  Stopgap bill to prevent shutdown held up over farm funding WASHINGTON (AP) — Efforts to fashion a temporary spending bill needed to avert a government shutdown at the end of the month ran aground Friday amid a fight over farm bailout funding that's a key priority of President Donald Trump and Capitol Hill Republicans. A House Appropriations Committee spokesman said the measure, which aides had predicted would be released Friday evening, won't be unveiled until next week. The measure needs to be passed by the end of the budget year on Sept. 30 to prevent a shutdown of nonessential government functions.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin agreed earlier this month to keep talks on a coronavirus relief stimulus package separate from the funding bill . The funding bill was subject to a last minute fight Friday over farm aid that both sides were trying to resolve.

Senate Republicans from farm states pushed for the $30 billion to replenish funding for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Commodity Credit Corp., a government-owned entity that aims to stabilize farm income. Trump announced $13 billion in new aid to farmers, drawing from the CCC, at a rally in Wisconsin on Thursday, and the corporation had already projected an increase in demand for agriculture-risk coverage, price-loss coverage and marketing-assistance loans.

Democrats floated the possibility of providing the farm funds in exchange for $2 billion in child-nutrition money on Friday, but that was never finalized before Pelosi called Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to cancel the trade-off, according to aides.

A Treasury spokeswoman declined to comment.

The House bill set to be released will also leave out the child-nutrition money for a program that runs out at the end of the month.

House leaders have been planning for a vote this week on the stopgap, and then it will be up to the Republican-majority Senate to act before Sept. 30. Without the CCC money, the Senate could try to block and amend the House stopgap, leading to a confrontation just before the deadline. A showdown over border-wall funding led to a 35-day shutdown of the U.S. government in late 2018 and early 2019.

Pelosi and Mnuchin had agreed earlier this month to keep talks on a coronavirus relief package separate from the funding bill. Those stimulus talks have stalled since early August, with the two sides about $1 trillion apart in their offers.
