BP: House passes short-term spending bill to avert shutdown


November 20, 2019

WASHINGTON - The House passed a short-term spending bill Tuesday that would avert a government shutdown on Friday, setting up a Christmas showdown over President Donald Trump's border wall that could fall in the midst of impeachment votes against the president.

The legislation, which passed 231 to 192, extends government funding through Dec. 20. It must pass the Senate and be signed by Trump before midnight on Thursday Nov. 21. If not, government funding would expire, causing many agencies to begin to shutter operations and furlough staff.
