House passes stopgap bill and averts government shutdown

The House passed a stopgap bill on Tuesday to keep the government open, putting Congress on a path to avert a shutdown and setting the stage for a broader funding fight in the new year. The Senate will next need to approve the measure. President Joe Biden is prepared to sign the bill if it is passed by the Senate. Current government funding is set to expire on Friday, Nov. 17. The stopgap bill passed the House on a bipartisan basis with a vote of 336 to 95.
