The House just approved the Senate-passed stopgap funding bill to avert a shutdown by extending government funding through Dec. 3. The vote was 254-175, with some Republicans voting in favor of the measure.
Government funding was set to expire at midnight. The bill now heads to President Biden's desk to be signed.
In addition to funding the government, the stopgap bill will "provide funding to help process and resettle Afghan refugees and finally deliver on critical disaster aid for Americans battered by storms and wildfires this summer," Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.
