Speaker Nancy Pelosi and U.S. House Democrats released a stopgap government funding bill Monday without support from the White House or Senate Republicans, raising the risk of a federal shutdown at the end of the month.

The bill would extend current levels of spending for agencies past the Sept. 30 end of the fiscal year through Dec. 11. But it doesn’t include $30 billion for farm aid that the White House had sought, which Democrats want to negotiate as part of separate stimulus negotiations, drawing complaints from Republicans.
