House passes bill to fund Transportation Dept., HUD

Source: The Hill

The Democratic-led House passed a standalone spending measure Thursday to provide funding for the Departments of Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and other agencies.

The House voted 244-180 to approve the clean funding measure. Twelve Republicans bucked party lines to join Democrats in voting for the bill on the floor.

The 12 Republicans who voted for the bill is an uptick from the eight who voted the previous day on a measure to reopen the IRS, Treasury Department and other federal agencies.

Passage of the latest bill Thursday comes on the 20th day of the partial government shutdown, with no clear path forward to reopen agencies as negotiators remain in a stalemate over President Trumpís demand for border wall funding.

I suspect he will be sleeping on the couch tonight if he doesn't pass it!

She's the head of Transportation.
