The House and Senate today voted to pass a continuing resolution that would extend current federal funding levels for health care and other programs through Dec. 3. The legislation also includes $28.6 billion in disaster relief and $6.3 billion to support evacuees from Afghanistan, but would not suspend the statutory debt limit. Current government funding was set to expire tonight.
