The Senate yesterday passed H.R.6157, a Minibus which allocates FY 2019 funds for the DoD, Labor, Education, and HHS. Notably, the Minibus also contains a CR which will fund remaining agencies through December 7th, giving Congress more time to resolve differences between funding bills previously passed by the House and Senate. The vote today was 93-7. The House is expected to take up H.R.6157 next week, and it is hoped by Members of Congress that the inclusion of the CR will push President Trump to sign the bill. President Trump has sent mixed messages over the past few weeks as to whether or not he will sign the remaining FY 2019 spending bills, as he made clear that he desires full funding be included for a wall running the entire length of our Southern Border.
