NBC News reports:
The House passed a short-term government funding bill that would prevent a shutdown before the Friday night deadline, sending the legislation to the Senate, where it faces an uncertain future.
The House voted 221-212 to advance the continuing resolution. If it is approved by the Senate and signed by President Joe Biden, it will keep large parts of the government funded until Feb. 18.
One Republican, Rep. Adam Kinzinger, of Illinois, joined all of the Democrats to pass the legislation. The Senate is likely to vote on the bill Thursday evening, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.
