“Federal spending draft has been approved in the House of Representatives by 231 votes to 192”

With the Democrats probe to split Trump from office, the lawmakers are concerned about their ability to reach a long-term budget deal by Dec. 20.

Without Trump’s signing of the temporary project, government funding would have been cut overnight, forcing multiple agencies to begin halting operations, stopping federal workers, returning them to their homes and temporarily suspending their salaries.
