Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said Wednesday morning that Republicans would introduce a continuing resolution to keep the government funded through Feb. 8.

Earlier Wednesday, the White House signaled it was open to a short-term solution to avert a government shutdown, according to the Washington Post. White House counsellor Kellyanne Conway told reporters the administration would “certainly” consider a continuing resolution.
