US House approves $1.4 trillion spending package to prevent government shutdown

The U.S. House of Representatives on Dec. 17 approved a $1.4 trillion spending package that would prevent a partial federal shutdown this weekend.

Lawmakers voted 297-120 to approve an eight-bill package focused on domestic spending and voted 280-138 to pass a four-bill package on national security spending through the end of the 2020 fiscal year. The current stopgap spending authorization is set to expire Dec. 20.

The spending measures now head to the Senate.

White House Counselor Kellyanne Conway said Dec. 17 that President Donald Trump plans to sign the spending measures, CNBC reported.

In fiscal year 2019, a partial government shutdown lasted 35 days as Trump and House Democrats reached an impasse over the president's demand for a U.S.-Mexico border wall.

The government's fiscal year begins Oct. 1.
