By @ibtimes on

U.S. House of Representatives Republican leaders on Friday presented to their membership a $39 billion spending cut plan aimed at averting a government shutdown, according to Republican lawmakers.

The House is also planning to vote later tonight on a stopgap funding bill to keep the government running until the longer budget plan can be enacted into law sometime next week, the lawmakers said.

Republican Representatives Mike Rogers and Devin Nunes made the remarks as House Republicans were meeting in the Capitol.
