Chuck Schumer

The Senate on Thursday voted 65-35 to pass a stopgap funding bill to avoid a government shutdown.

Government funding is set to expire at 11:59:59 pm et Thursday.

15 Republicans voted with Democrats to avert a shutdown.

The stopgap bill funds the government until December 3 and does not raise the debt ceiling.

The bill includes $29 billion in disaster relief for states hit hard by Hurricane Ida and provides $6 billion to resettle Afghan ‘refugees.’

“This is a good outcome, one I´m happy we are getting done,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said. “With so many things to take care of in Washington, the last thing the American people need is for the government to grind to a halt.”

The senate-passed bill will head to the House for a vote this afternoon and requires a signature from Biden.

Update: The senate-passed bill passed the House and is now headed to Joe Biden’s desk for a signature.

The House passed the bill in a 254-175 vote.
