The Senate approved a deal Monday to continue funding the federal government past Friday, the end of the fiscal year, avoiding a government shutdown.
The House has scheduled a short session for Thursday to vote on the measure. Both bodies were scheduled to be in recess this week.
Democrats and Republicans were deadlocked over whether money set for disaster relief would have to be offset with cuts in other areas of the budget.
“This compromise should satisfy Republicans…and it should satisfy Democrats…it’s a win for everyone,” said Senate Majority leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) just before the vote.
