Republican Congressional leadership is planning to propose two short-term funding bills which would keep the government running on current funding levels through Dec. 22 and then through sometime in January, Politico reports.

Why it matters: This would be a temporary solution until agreement on a bigger funding bill could be reached. And this is a change from the plan discussed in the meeting with Trump, which involved only one bill to fund the government into January.
