    House OKs measure to prevent possible end-of-month shutdown

    The House passed a short-term bill Thursday to prevent a federal shutdown when the budget year ends Sept. 30, and give lawmakers until the Thanksgiving break to negotiate and approve $1.4 trillion for federal agencies. The Senate is expected to approve the stopgap bill next week. The vote in the Democratic-run House on the bipartisan plan was 301-123.
    The agency spending bills would fill in the details of this summer’s budget and debt agreement between President Donald Trump and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.
    The Republican-controlled Senate is struggling over how to move ahead with its versions of the follow-up spending bills.

    The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday approved three noncontroversial measures on unanimous votes as the sniping continued in the wake of Wednesday’s Democratic filibuster of the almost $700 billion defense bill and other legislation.
