House passes spending bill

The House passed a massive $1.3 trillion spending package on Thursday, sending it onto the Senate, which is expected to act as quickly as it can. Funding for the federal government runs out on Friday night.

House action is one of the final chapters in months of often-chaotic political struggles over the federal budget — partisan squabbles that led to two short government shutdowns. With control of Congress up for grabs in November — and a president who changed position on major issues on a regular basis — there were times when it didn't look like a final deal was possible.
