House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Thursday urged his unruly caucus to show flexibility over a measure to keep the government open when funding runs out in less than a week, a fellow Republican said.
Republican Representative Mo Brooks, a member of the caucus, said Boehner "told us to be flexible" during a meeting on Thursday morning.

Separately, Republican Representative Jeff Sessions said there would be no shutdown or government default.
The looming deadline for the government to hit the debt ceiling and government funding measures are complicated by Republican attempts to use the bills to gut President Barack Obama's signature health-care law, known as "Obamacare."
The Democratic-led Senate is on track to vote on Saturday for legislation to avert government agency shutdowns. But the Republican-led House was set for tough fights over the next few days.
Speaking to reporters Thursday morning, Boehner said he doesn't think the House will pass a "clean" spending bill but he also doesn't expect a partial government shutdown on Tuesday. "There will be options available" for House Republicans to add to a spending bill that would make it acceptable.
