US House votes to fund government into January

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 231-188 to fund the government through Jan. 19 in an effort to avert a government shutdown just after Republicans passed a $1.5 trillion tax plan.

Current government funding is set to expire at midnight Dec. 22, and the bill now heads to the Senate, where it is expected to be taken up quickly.

The bill includes short-term funds for the Children's Health Insurance Program, or CHIP, but does not include any provisions for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, individuals brought into the United States as children who were shielded from deportation under an-Obama era program. The Trump administration announced earlier this year that they would be rescinding the program, calling for Congress to come up with a legislative fix.

Some Senate Democrats, including Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden of Oregon and Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California, said they will not vote for the funding bill because it does not include provisions for DACA recipients and does not do enough for CHIP.
