Senate Passes Amended HR 240 – House Disagrees

Earlier today the Senate adopted a clean version of HR 240 by a vote of 68 to 31; all 31 nay votes were from conservative Republicans. Just now the House voted (228 to 191) to disagree with the Senate amendment to HR 240 and to request a conference. It is unlikely that there will be a resolution to the disagreement on HR 240 today.

Meanwhile, the House debated HJ Res 35 and is now waiting for the leadership to call for a vote on that measure that would extend the current DHS funding until March 19th. The Senate is currently in recess subject to the call of the Chair waiting to take up either HR 240 or HJ Res 35.
