U.S. House Republicans cancel news conference over gov't funding

WASHINGTON, Dec 20 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan canceled a news conference scheduled for Thursday morning as his fellow Republicans sought to come to an agreement over a temporary funding bill to avert a partial federal government shutdown.

House Republicans are expected to hold a second closed-door meeting on the stop-gap funding measure later on Thursday ahead of a Friday midnight deadline, MSNBC reported separately. (Reporting by Richard Cowan Writing by Susan Heavey Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
