The U.S. House of Representatives on Friday passed a stopgap funding measure to keep the federal government open until at least mid-December.
The continuing resolution measure was approved by a 230-201 margin with a majority-Democratic vote.
The approval came a day after the Senate passed the same resolution in a down-to-the-wire vote.
President Joe Biden is expected to sign it into law later today.
If the resolution had not been passed, the government would have shut down due to Friday evening’s deadline for approval of the upcoming federal budget.
