House Passes FY20 Spending Bills

Today, the House passed a pair of spending bills (or “minibuses”) that allow the government to maintain operations past the Friday shutdown deadline. The two bills, H.R. 1158 and H.R. 1865, carry federal funding through September 30, 2020.

The $1.4 trillion spending package was bipartisan. Democrats lost votes from Progressive and Hispanic Caucus members who cited funding for the Trump administration’s immigration policies as the primary reason for their no votes.

The pair of bills will be voted on quickly by the Senate. The President has indicated that he will sign the bills.
