House OKs temporary spending bill to avoid shutdown, but future in Senate unclear

January 19, 2018

A temporary spending bill passed in the House of Representatives Thursday evening, but its prospects in the Senate are unclear as Congress fights to avoid a government shutdown set for Friday night.

The final House vote in favor of the bill was 230-197, with 11 Republicans voting no and six Democrats voting yes. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 majority in the Senate.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., spoke to reporters just after the vote and directed his comments to Senate Democrats and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

House of Representatives needs to pass Government Funding Bill tonight. So important for our country – our Military needs it!
