WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate's top Republican says he and the Democratic leader have agreed on a spending measure to keep the government running through March.

Passing the bill — known as a "continuing resolution" — would prevent the government from running out of money for daily operations and forcing a shutdown.

Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky tells CNN's "State of the Union" that he and Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada have a deal on the measure. The budget year began Oct. 1 but Congress hasn't passed any of its annual spending bills.

Last Thursday, Democrats pulled back a $1.3 trillion spending bill after Republicans decided not to support it. Republicans complained about special projects in the bill, its overall cost and the lack of time for debate.
