BREAKING: House Passes Two-Step Continuing Resolution to Avert Partial Government Shutdown

Sharing is Caring!

The Republican-held House of Representatives voted Tuesday to pass Speaker Mike Johnson’s two-part continuing resolution (CR) to avoid a government shutdown on Nov. 17.

Johnson’s plan, the “Further Continuing Appropriations and Other Extensions Act of 2024,” would temporarily extend a majority of federal funding through Feb. 2, as well as four other appropriations bills until Jan. 19, according to the bill’s text. Despite some Republicans criticizing the move for not providing spending cuts and other conservative provisions, the CR passed the lower chamber by a 336-95 vote with bipartisan support.

The spending legislation received 209 Democratic votes, while 93 Republicans opposed it.
