House lawmakers late Jan. 18 passed a short-term funding measure to keep the government open for business in the face of a looming shutdown, but the measure still faces an uncertain future in the Senate.
The measure (H.R. 195) passed by a vote of 230-197. It would fund the government through Feb. 16 and renew the Children’s Health Insurance Program for six years. It does not, however, include provisions Democrats have been demanding to save the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The Senate voted to start deliberations on the measure after the House action, but Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) doesn’t appear to have the 60 votes necessary to send the resolution to President Donald Trump for his signature. Republicans control the Senate by a 51-49 margin, but a supermajority is needed to pass most measures.
The government’s funding is currently set to expire at midnight Jan. 19. Federal employees aren’t paid during the course of a shutdown, but those designated as “essential” are required to continue working.
