White House Supports Short-Term Government Funding Bill

Wednesday, 17 January 2018 01:53 PM

The White House said on Wednesday it supports a short-term bill to fund the government and prevent a shutdown, even though its first preference would have been for a long-term deal.

"We do support the short-term CR," White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders told reporters, referring to a so-called continuing resolution to fund government operations. "However, it is not our first choice. We'd still like to see a clean funding bill -- a two-year budget deal."
