House Averts Government Shutdown With Passing of $1.4 Trillion Spending Deal.

On Dec.

17, the United States House of Representatives voted to approve a $1.4 trillion spending deal to fund the government through the 2020 fiscal year.

.

Their decision came just days ahead of the Dec.

20 deadline, preventing what many feared would be another government shutdown.

.

At this time last year, Congress failed to agree on funding, which resulted in the longest government shutdown in US history.

.

Included in the $1.4 trillion spending deal is $1.37 billion for border barriers, $425 million for election-security grants and $1.5 billion for preventative opioid crisis grants.

$25 million is allocated for gun-violence research, marking the first time in 20 years that Congress has appropriated money for such research.

.

Military and civilian federal workers will also see a 3.1 percent pay raise if approved by the Senate.

.

Lawmakers also agreed on an added provision that would prevent anyone younger than 21 from buying tobacco products.

.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Donald Trump is “poised to sign” the legislation once it reaches his desk.
