WASHINGTON (Reuters) - House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner will seek to fund most of the U.S. government through Sept. 30, 2015, a senior Republican aide said on Tuesday.

During a closed meeting of House Republicans, Boehner proposed short-term funding for the Department of Homeland Security to reconsider President Barack Obama's immigration move early next year, the House aide said.
