(Worthy News) – The House passed a short-term spending bill on Wednesday that would fund the government for another week while lawmakers make an eleventh hour push to pass a full year-long omnibus package prior to the Dec. 23 deadline.
After clearing the lower chamber in a 224-201 vote, the measure now moves to the Senate. The bill must secure passage in the upper chamber and reach President Joe Biden’s desk for signature prior to midnight on Friday to prevent a government shutdown, according to The Hill.
The bill’s advancement comes as some Republicans want to wait to negotiate next year’s spending until Republicans take control of the House in January so as to put more pressure on Democrats. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, meanwhile, has lent his support to a compromise spending package that he asserts represents the best deal the GOP will get.
