The House voted 230-201 today to pass a stopgap continuing resolution that would keep the federal government funded through Dec. 16, sending the measure to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

The Senate passed the CR yesterday, which will give Congress time to campaign for mid-term elections and return to Washington to negotiate a final fiscal year 2023 appropriations package.

The stopgap bill, among other things, contains $7.5 billion in military aid for Ukraine and $4.5 billion in economic aid.
