House Passes CR Unacceptable to Senate Democrats

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call
Speaker John Boehner and his GOP caucus finally pushed through a continuing resolution that includes $3.6 billion in disaster aid around midnight Thursday.

Congress has through Sept. 30, the end of the fiscal year, to act, or parts of the government could shut down. Both the House and Senate are scheduled to be in recess next week, but without an agreement on what to include in the CR, the chambers might need to work into next week.
