After months of negotiations, five continuing resolutions, and two government shutdowns, the House of Representatives finally released the text of its FY 2018 omnibus spending bill last night. The $1.3 trillion spending bill would fund the government for the remaining six months of the fiscal year. The House passed the spending bill this afternoon by a vote of 256-167, with opposition from conservative Republicans and some Democrats. The Senate now has only one day to pass their version of the omnibus before tomorrow’s midnight deadline, when the current continuing resolution (CR) expires. If Congress is not able to agree on a longer-term omnibus bill or a short-term spending fix before tomorrow’s deadline, we will be facing our third government shutdown of the calendar year.
