Congress has one week left to avoid a government shutdown.
Instead of working on a long-term funding plan, Wisconsin Republican Mike Gallagher says Congress keeps passing short-term spending bills to buy more time, without fixing problems.
Lawmakers are already preparing for another stopgap bill next week, to once again keep the government running for a few more weeks. The plan will also give Congress a later deadline to come up with a long-term plan.
Wisconsin native, House Speaker Paul Ryan says he’s confident lawmakers will reach a final deal.
