WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Lawmakers moved closer to a deal on Monday to fund the government through next year, potentially avoiding a shutdown that would have further damaged Congress' tattered reputation ahead of the 2012 election.
The group of Republican and Democratic lawmakers tentatively agreed on how to fund a wide range of government functions from homeland security to protecting the environment, congressional aides said.
Details were not immediately available and lawmakers were expected to publish the massive spending bill on Tuesday after hashing out remaining differences and assembling the legislation.
