The House passed a $1.5 trillion omnibus funding measure on Wednesday to keep the government running and offer $13.6 billion in aid to Ukraine and Eastern European countries, although $15.6 billion for the COVID-19 strategy was dropped as Democrats fought to pass the bill. With one present vote, the defense section of the bill passed 361-69, while the domestic expenditure portion passed 260-171. The 2,700-page bill, which now goes to the Senate, is the result of months of bipartisan and bicameral talks between senior Democratic and Republican appropriators. The program’s specifics, which pay government agencies for the rest of the fiscal year, were disclosed early Wednesday, ahead of Congress’s Friday deadline to adopt legislation to avoid a partial government shutdown.
