This afternoon the House approved an amendment to the Senate amendment to HR 2028. This new amendment is the vehicle for extending the current federal government spending rate until April 28th, 2017. The Further Continuing and Security Assistance Appropriations Act, 2017 passed by a bipartisan vote of 326 – 96. Even the no votes were relatively bipartisan with 33 Republicans voting no.
The Senate should take up this bill tomorrow in plenty of time to meet the midnight deadline for the end of the current continuing resolution.
