On the brink of a federal shutdown, the House passes a 45-day funding plan and sends it to Senate

  • In a rare move, the House passed a 45-day funding bill to keep federal agencies running, relying on Democratic votes after Speaker Kevin McCarthy abandoned spending cuts. McCarthy's attempt to pass a Republican-only bill with steep cuts was rejected by Democrats and the White House.
  • The Senate was also prepared to act to fund the government before the midnight deadline. The House bill aligns closer to the bipartisan approach of the Senate, funding at current 2023 levels for 45 days.
  • The far-right House Republicans, including members of the House Freedom Caucus, disrupted the process of funding the government, demanding cuts to federal programs and military aid to Ukraine. However, their efforts were unsuccessful in passing a stopgap measure earlier this month.
