McCarthy allies and Freedom Caucus agree on stopgap measure that includes border security bill
According to a source with direct knowledge, the two caucuses agreed to a 31-day continuing resolution that includes all of the House’s border security bill passed earlier this year — except for the E-verify provisions, which rural Republicans are against.
It will also include some border security provisions that are in the Homeland Appropriations Bill, which the Washington Examiner previously reported on. In the continuing resolution, the Department of Defense and Military Construction and Veteran Affairs appropriations bills will be funded at the current fiscal year 2023 levels, where everything else will receive an 8% cut, according to the source.
The deal was negotiated by Reps. Chip Roy (R-TX), Scott Perry (R-PA), and Byron Donalds (R-FL) from the Freedom Caucus, and Reps. Dusty Johnson (R-SD), Kelly Armstrong (R-ND), and Stephanie Bice (R-OK) from the Main Street Caucus, according to a source with direct knowledge of the talks.
