As House Speaker Paul Ryan has been negotiating policy specifics of the $1.1 trillion government-funding bill with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi for several days, he told House Republicans Monday night that the year-long bill contains some policy victories for the GOP, but not as many as lawmakers will like, Politico reports.

"Republicans have secured the lifting of a decades-old ban on exporting U.S. oil," Politico reported. "But, GOP attempts to insert language into the bill to impose tougher controls on Syrian and Iraqi refugees were unsuccessful."

Ryan noted that he will explain details of the legislation on Tuesday in a closed-party meeting as well as discuss what he would consider a "win" in the legislation.

Although senior aides are expecting Democrats to support the bill in much larger numbers, Ryan is allowing three days for lawmakers to review the package, which sets up a Thursday vote.

However, because the government shuts down Wednesday evening for a two-week holiday break, the House and Senate will need to clear a temporary spending bill to allow Congress to pass the longer-term legislation.
