美国众议院批准1.3万亿美元开支法案 House Approves $1.3 Trillion Spending Bill






The U.S. House of Representatives Thursday approved a $1.3 trillion spending bill, which advances the plan that could prevent a government shutdown.

The measure, approved by a 256-167 vote, now goes to the Senate, which has until midnight Friday night to approve it and avert the year's third government closure.

The House vote came hours after the nearly 2,200 page bill was released Wednesday night. Because the bill is most likely to be the last significant legislation passed this year, lawmakers scrambled to include their own spending proposals.

The massive bipartisan bill would keep the government funded until the end of September. The measure would fulfill U.S. President Donald Trump's vow to boost military funding while restricting much of his immigration agenda.

The bill, which the White House said Trump supports, would give Trump a huge budget increase for the military, including a 2.4 percent pay raise for military personnel.
