U.S. House Democrats introduce bill to fund government until November 21

Ukraine military aid extension passes US House after White House delay House Passes Short Term Spending Bill to Postpone Possible Government Shutdown

The House passed a short-term bill Thursday to prevent a federal shutdown when the budget year ends September 30, and give lawmakers until the Thanksgiving break to negotiate and approve $1.4 trillion for federal agencies.

The CR passed the House with a bipartisan 301-123, though one notable "no" was House Armed Services Committee ranking member Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, who said it brakes the budget deal's promise of "stable and predictable funding" for the military.

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 nearly $700 billion defense bill and other legislation.

The legislation would give lawmakers until Thanksgiving break to come up with agreement on $1.4 trillion worth of appropriations bills. Had it succeeded, it would have allowed Senate Republicans to substitute their own version of the legislation and push the process closer to final negotiations with their counterparts in the Democrat-led House.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer orchestrated the party-line filibuster vote, claiming Senate GOP leaders were doing President Donald Trump's bidding on the U.S. -Mexico border fence and paying for it by shortchanging health and education programs.

A dispute over border wall funding helped trigger the 35-day partial government shutdown that started in December and stretched into January. He added that there was no Congressional Budget Office estimate of the measure's costs.

Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard Shelby, a Republican from Alabama, said the deadlock could result in a full-year stopgap spending bill, which would fund agencies next year based on this year's spending instructions, according to Bloomberg.

"We can not ask the troops once again to pay for Congress's inability to get our work done, or hold them hostage to either party's partisan desires", Thornberry said.

Once the funding bill is passed, "I think we're going to have some big fights with reference to things that we care very passionately about, including how people are treated at the border", Hoyer said. She said, "They know their timetable".
