Republican Spending Cuts Bill

Republican Spending Cuts Bill: Conservative Republicans on Capitol Hill began Monday to come out against a measure to keep the government running for three more weeks while the White House and Republican lawmakers seek a longer-term agreement on spending cuts.

Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, who chairs the Republican Study Committee, which makes up a sizable majority of House Republicans, said the measure should include a ban on federal funding for Planned Parenthood and that Congress needs to do better than cutting spending a few billion dollars at a time.

Jordan's opposition reflects widespread unhappiness among conservatives with the must-pass legislation. The measure is needed to prevent a partial government shutdown when a stopgap funding bill expires Friday at midnight.

The House is set to vote Tuesday on a measure cutting $6 billion as the price for keeping the government open until April 8. Democrats and Republicans remain deadlocked over legislation funding day-to-day agency operations.
