House GOP Holdouts Again Stall Defense Bill, Dampen Hopes For Avoiding Shutdown

House Republicans were set Thursday to pick themselves up, dust themselves off and again try to get back to passing spending bills to avoid a looming government shutdown after the defense funding bill was stalled for the second time in three days.

“That was the most productive meeting we’ve had in some time and frankly we heard really good ideas,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) told reporters after emerging from House Speaker Kevin McCarthy’s (R-Calif.) office.

But just a few hours later, McCarthy’s leadership team notified members that no further votes were expected Thursday. They said that discussions were continuing and they would give lawmakers ample notice of any potential votes in the coming days.

The notice was the latest round of the chaotic stop-and-go process House Republicans have engaged in this week to try to hammer out a position for their entire conference on federal spending.
