WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A majority of the U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to approve a Senate-passed measure that avoids a partial government shutdown by funding federal agencies into the new fiscal year that begins on Friday.

The bill now goes to President Joe Biden, who is expected to sign the measure into law before a midnight deadline, when current government funding is set to expire.
