The House passed a bill extending government funding through Dec. 22, acting to avoid a federal shutdown this weekend. The government is now funded through midnight Friday and would partially shut down Saturday without a new bill. The Senate is expected to take up the measure next. The bill buys President Donald Trump and congressional leaders more time to hammer out a longer deal.
