House Passes HR 3547

This afternoon the House passed HR 3547, the newly named Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2014 by a strongly bipartisan vote of 359 – 67. The large bulk of the Nay votes came from Republicans. In fact, the bill would not have passed if it were not for the Democrats voting in favor of the bill; their Yea votes outnumbered those of the Republicans voting for the bill.

The bill, which will provide funding for the remainder of the fiscal year now goes to the Senate where it will most likely pass on a vote Friday afternoon or Saturday.

In an earlier vote today the Senate extended the current continuing resolution funding until Saturday midnight.
