The House on Tuesday approved a stopgap spending bill, this time hoping to kick the can on full-year appropriations to Dec. 20. 

The measure will now go to the Senate, which is expected to approve the bill before the current continuing resolution expires Thursday. The White House has indicated President Trump will sign the stopgap spending bill to avoid a shutdown. Federal agencies have been operating under a CR since Oct. 1. 

Lawmakers negotiated the month-long temporary spending bill to give leadership more time to finalize full-year measures for fiscal 2020, which would set line-by-line appropriations for each federal agency. Still, House Republicans overwhelmingly voted against the stopgap bill. 

Top negotiators in Congress previously speculated the stopgap would last into February or March, but bumped up the timeline in hopes of avoiding more CRs later in the year. Most federal agencies are in line for spending bumps over the fiscal 2019 levels thanks to a budget deal Trump signed into law earlier this year. The new shutdown deadline will now likely coincide with votes on Trump’s impeachment.
