House Democrats announce vote on temporary government spending bill this month

The House, led by Democrats, passed spending legislation, but Senate Republicans decided to wait until the two parties settled on a two-year spending caps deal reached earlier this summer.

Hoyer blamed Senate Republicans for failing to take up any appropriations measures but it was unlikely lawmakers would have escaped the need for a temporary funding measure, or continuing resolution.
