McConnell Says Short-Term, Government-Funding Measure Likely

(Newsmax)

By    |   Tuesday, 06 December 2022 04:18 PM EST

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said Tuesday it is increasingly likely Congress will need to pass a short-term continuing resolution to fund the government into early next year.

"We're at a pretty significant impasse," McConnell told reporters on Tuesday. "Time is ticking. We have not been able to agree on a top line yet, and I think it's becoming increasingly likely that we might need to do a short-term CR into early next year."

"We're running out of time, and that may end up being the only option left that we could agree to pursue," he said, referring to a "continuing resolution."

McConnell urged the the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) approval is "job one."

"We've done this for 60 straight years and I don't think they should be the first year we don't achieve passing an NDAA," he said.

Reuters contributed to this report.
