McCarthy: Talks 'closer' to averting shutdown

United States House Speaker Kevin McCarthy informed reporters on Wednesday that negotiations on the government spending are edging "closer" to averting a shutdown before October 1.

"We're making progress, it's not September 30 yet. The game is not over," the House Speaker underlined.

Earlier, McCarthy pledged to prevent a government shutdown but decided to cancel procedural vote on the proposed stopgap spending bill which was supposed to be held on September 19.
