Unusual group of supporters like the American Civil Liberties Union and billionaire conservative brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch view the changes as successful models for federal policy.
Meanwhile, advocates too push it right citing the changes will have a cut into the costs of a 2.2-million-person federal population.
Speaker Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin is learned to be putting the compromise in a lame-duck session on the House floor.
