According to sources in both the House and Senate, the House is likely to pass a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government beyond Saturday, when the current CR expires.
The omnibus measure, which the Senate was expected to move to later Thursday, may not have the votes to pass either chamber. In the Senate, support for the bill has eroded significantly over the last few days, and the longer it is stalled the harder it will be for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) to muster the 60 votes needed to break a GOP filibuster.
