WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on Tuesday on a short-term measure to fund the federal government through March 23 and avert another shutdown, Republican House members said on Monday.

The measure would fund most government agencies and contain a year of defense funding as well as two years of funding for community health centers, the Republican representatives told reporters.
