US House Passes 6-Month Stop-Gap Government Funding Plan
As reported on Special Report, the U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday approved a stopgap measure to fund the government for six months and eliminate any threat of a shutdown fight that could damage lawmakers' re-election hopes.
Below is more information out from Reuters:
"After spending much of the past two years fighting over cutting
government spending, the Republican-controlled House voted by a wide margin of 329-91 to slightly raise spending from current levels.
The bill, which now moves to the Senate where a vote is expected by next week, will be the last piece of substantive legislation passed by Congress before the Nov. 6 presidential and congressional elections. It must be signed into law before Sept. 30, when current government funding runs out."
