House Republicans will release another short term spending bill Friday to replace the current measure, which expires March 18. The new proposal would last for three weeks and cut another $6 billion from current spending levels. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, R-Ky., tells Fox that he thinks the bill will be free of controversial policy riders and just keep the government operating in order to give House and Senate negotiators more time to work out a longer-term solution. The bill should come up for a vote on Tuesday.
