House Passes 6 Month CR

This evening the House passed HJ Res 117, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2013 by a vote of 329 to 91. The vote was split in a unique bipartisan manner; about the same number of Democrats and Republicans voting for the measure and three times as many Republicans than Democrats voting against. It will be interesting to see if this type of voting pattern can be maintained in some of the crucial votes that will take part in the lame duck session.

The Senate will probably take up this bill next week. It looks like there should be enough votes to stop a filibuster if one is tried.
