Democratic leaders said Wednesday that President Trump and Republicans have agreed to a deal to lift the nation's borrowing limit and continue government funding through December 15.
The package will be paired with $8 billion in Hurricane Harvey disaster aid.
"In the meeting, the president and congressional leadership agreed to pass aid for Harvey, an extension of the debt limit, and a continuing resolution both to Dec. 15, all together," said House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. "Both sides have every intention of avoiding default in December and look forward to working together on the many issues before us."
Republicans had yet to comment on the apparent agreement, which came just hours after House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said a three-month solution on the debt ceiling would be "ridiculous."
The deal comes after Democrats declared they would not support a debt ceiling increase longer than three months because they are eager to negotiate wish list items, including Obamacare funding and immigration reform.
Democrats are eager to for Congress to pass a bill legalizing young people known as Dreamers, who arrived in the United States as children.
"As Democratic leaders, we also made it clear that we strongly believe the DREAM Act must come to the floor and pass as soon as possible and we will not rest until we get this done," Pelosi and Schumer said.
