House Democrats to file measure funding gov't through Dec 11

Democrats in the US House of Representatives plan to file a stopgap funding measure that would avoid a government shutdown and keep federal agencies operating through Dec. 11, according to a House Democratic aide.
The measure, known formally as a continuing resolution or CR, is expected to be taken up by the Democratic-led House and the Republican-led Senate next week.
Word of the CR emerged after weeks of negotiations between Democrats and Republicans. Failure to adopt the measure would threaten a partial shutdown of the federal government. Current funding for US agencies runs out after Sept. 30, the end of the federal fiscal year.
