House Passes Temporary Spending Bill To Avoid THIS

Via Fox News:

The House of Representatives approved an interim spending bill Thursday, boosting hopes of avoiding a government shutdown at the end of the month.

The bill, which funds the government at current levels through Nov. 21, was passed 301-123. All but three Democrats voted to support the measure, meaning the bill could have passed the House without any GOP “yea” votes.

The Senate is expected to approve the package next week, meaning fights over funding for President Trump’s border wall and possible restrictions on appropriations for the Department of Homeland Security restrictions over the treatment of migrants.

If the bill is enacted, lawmakers would have until Nov. 21 to negotiate and approve $1.4 trillion for federal agencies. Those bills would fill in the details of this summer’s budget and debt agreement between Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
