House set to pass short-term government funding bill

Washington (CNN) - The House of Representatives is set to vote Tuesday on a bill that would extend funding for the federal government by another two weeks - through March 18 - while cutting $4 billion from current spending levels.

If approved, the measure, which also needs to be cleared by the Senate, would trim spending in earmarks and other programs agreed to by leaders of both political parties. It would prevent a government shutdown after March 4.
