The House passed a short-term spending extension, delaying the next shutdown threat to March. Republicans surrendered leverage on enacting a border security package.

The continuing resolution (CR) passed 314-108, extending spending levels set by Pelosi and Schumer.

Speaker Johnson faced pushback from conservatives to attach border security measures but opted to advance the CR as passed by the Senate.

“The question for my colleagues on this side of the aisle is ‘what are we gonna do about it?’” Rep. Chip Roy said.

The bill requires President Biden’s signature to avert a partial government shutdown.
