House Amends and Passes HJ Res 124

Earlier this evening the House passed the FY 2015 Continuing Resolution, HJ Res 124, after adopting the only amendment available for consideration. The Syrian rebel aid amendment passed in a by-partisan vote of 273 to 156; more Democrats supported it than there were Republicans who opposed the bill. The final vote was much more bipartisan with a final vote of 319 to 108.

This bill will extend government spending through December 11th. It also extends the CFATS regulations through that date.

The Senate has until September 30th to pass the bill.
