WASHINGTON - The US House of Representatives is expected to vote this week on a proposal to cut off funds for US military hostilities in Libya, lawmakers in the Republican majority said on Wednesday.

The measure, which is still being drafted, would ban funding for US participation in combat missions such as drone attacks in the NATO-led air war, said Representative Howard McKeon, chairman of the House Armed Services Committee.
