House OKs spending bill to keep government operating
WASHINGTON (MCT) — No longer interested in shutting down the government, the Republican-led House approved legislation Thursday to keep it running into next year, jettisoning the GOP’s earlier strategy of using the annual federal funding bill as leverage to extract spending cuts.
The House approved the measure, 329-91. The Senate, where Democrats hold a narrow majority, is expected to approve it before the Oct. 1 deadline, averting a government shutdown at the start of the new fiscal year.
