The U.S. House of Representatives on Tuesday approved a stopgap spending bill to fund the government through late March.

In a vote of 245-182, the House passed a temporary spending bill to extend most government spending at current levels through March 23 while providing more funds for the Pentagon through Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.

However, Senate leaders from both the Republican and Democratic parties are discussing a two-year deal to lift spending caps on defense and domestic programs, which suggests that they would probably not support the House-version spending bill.

The U.S. federal government is running on a short-term spending bill which will expire on Feb. 8. Lawmakers need to work out a spending measure before Thursday to prevent another government shutdown.

The government was shut down last month after lawmakers failed to reach an agreement on contentious budget and immigration issues.

Senate leaders said they don't want to shut down the government again and see little risk that it would occur.

"I'm optimistic that very soon we'll be able to reach an agreement," Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday, referring to the two-year budget deal they were discussing.

"We're making real progress on a spending deal that would increase the caps for both military and middle-class priorities on the domestic side that my colleagues have been fighting for," said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer.

The Senate is expected to vote on the new spending bill on Wednesday, when lawmakers are likely to change the bill and return it to the House for final passage.
