House passes stopgap spending bill
By PVA National Staff
The House passed 359-57 a short-term spending fix, H.R. 8337, that would avert a government shutdown at the end of the month.
The bipartisan continuing resolution — which would extend government funding through December 11 — represents a remarkable turnaround after negotiations fell apart late last week.
The short-term funding fix now goes to the Senate, where it is expected to pass on the last day of the fiscal year.
If signed into law by the President, it would also postpone a number of contentious funding fights — from the border wall to the renaming of Confederate monuments at military installations — to the lame-duck session of Congress.
