HJ Res 48 Passes in House

This afternoon the House passed HJ Res 48, the latest short-term continuing resolution to keep the Federal government funded through April 8th. The vote of 271 to 158 was very bipartisan. The bulk of the Republicans were joined by 85 Democrats in voting for the measure while 54 Republicans joined the majority of the Democrats in voting against the bill. The bill now needs to be taken up and passed by the Senate before midnight Friday to avoid a now generally unexpected government shutdown.
