Members of Congress will have about 12 days in session after the August recess to pass new legislation, called a continuing resolution, to keep the federal government funded after a current measure expires September 30. Some Republican lawmakers say they want to use the spending bill to defund Planned Parenthood, a government-funded women's health care organization that also performs abortions. VOA Congressional Correspondent Cindy Saine reports this means a possible budget showdown.
