The House of Representatives canceled a scheduled key procedural vote Tuesday on a temporary government funding bill hashed out by Republicans.
The House GOP leadership pulled a vote originally scheduled for 2:30 p.m. ET to advance a stopgap measure to fund the federal government through Oct. 31, according to an updated legislative schedule published by Democratic Whip Katherine Clark.
House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., supports a temporary funding measure to keep the government running. But he has faced opposition from hard-right members of the GOP.
Key Republican factions in the House reached a tentative deal Sunday to avoid a shutdown by pairing temporary funding with spending cuts and a border security measure backed by the hard right.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said he would do everything he can to "assemble a coalition to defeat" the measure, called a continuing resolution.
