Bill to fund government passes House, goes to Biden just before deadline

The House on Friday passed legislation to fund the government and avert a partial shutdown, sending it to President Biden for his signature hours before a midnight deadline. The continuing resolution extends current funding levels until Dec. 16, while also approving $12.4 billion in military and diplomatic spending to help Ukraine in its war against Russia. It also contains $18.8 billion for domestic disaster recovery efforts, including Western wildfires, floods in Kentucky and hurricanes in the Southeast.

The House vote was 230-201, with 10 Republicans breaking ranks to support the legislation. The Senate passed the bill, 72 to 25, on Thursday after Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.) dropped his proposal that would have overhauled federal rules for environmental permitting for large energy projects after it became evident it would not garner the 60 votes required to attach it to the must-pass legislation. The president's request to include coronavirus and monkeypox funding was excluded to ensure both chambers could pass the legislation.

"We need this bill," Rep. Rosa De Lauro (D-Conn.) said on the House floor moments before the vote. "We provide relief to working families, to our schools, our children, small businesses, communities across this nation. We support the people of Ukraine. We support them in what is the fight for their lives, for their democracy and for world democracy against Russian aggression. We protect communities everywhere in need of safe water. We help to rebuild them from crushing natural disasters. This bill will make a very real difference in the lives of Americans everywhere." Averting a government shutdown was the final goal for Democrats to complete before leaving Washington for the final sprint to the midterm elections.

Failure to pass a funding bill would be an embarrassment for the party that controls both chambers. Democrats have campaigned on their ability to govern as a contrast to Republicans, who oversaw two government shutdowns during the Trump administration. "We will be able to do what is necessary here in the House to keep the government open to make sure that it can continue to properly function and deliver for the American people," Democratic Caucus Chair Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) said Thursday. "House Democrats are going to continue to put people over politics, fight for lower costs, better paying jobs and safer communities."

1. thanks for posting

Why the r's keep getting away with dicking with the economy is beyond me. This has been going on for years, and they keep blocking this normal and vital action. This is like the abusive breadwinner in a family keeping their check and letting their family go wanting.

The r's are abusers and every person in the U.S. needs to understand that they are abusers and how to stand up to them.

Here is a list of abusive behaviors. Check off the ones that r politician do regularly. Substitute opponent for friends or family:
Emotional abuse is generally considered any harmful abusive behavior that is not physical. A relationship becomes emotionally abusive when the pattern occurs repeatedly over time. One or two incidents may just be a bad fight. However, several incidents create the dynamic of an abusive relationship. It may include the following:

Aggressive verbal communication
Verbal threats
Manipulative and controlling behavior
Humiliation in front of friends or family
Name-calling, insults, and put-downs
Silent treatment
Gaslighting
Isolating you from others

4. The people who are on the fence need to know that.

Pukes would rather people die then get help from a functioning government.

6. LOL

Sometimes bosses find a way to shoe-horn people into being "essential personnel" so you are stuck working (without pay) anyway!

8. Only until Dec. 16th

Then, we get to go through all this again. What's wrong with agreeing on a YEARLY budget? Isn't that how this used to work?

9. It's rare that they have agreed to each of the 12+ appropriations bills

"on time" and note here that this CR has to do with "appropriations" vs "budget" (the last "budget" changes having happened with passage of the "Inflation Reduction Act" as a "budget reconciliation" package).

I worked under 6 Presidents before retiring 2 weeks after 45 was inaugurated and only recall maybe twice when the appropriations were actually submitted and signed into law before the new fiscal year began (and IIRC, the time under Obama came by law due to how the "Budget Control Act" was written that authorized 2 FYs of funding so the 2nd year's funding automatically went into effect when it was supposed to).
