Congress passes two year budget deal, avoids shutdown
Tuesday’s Ryan-Murray budget deal was approved overwhelmingly Thursday afternoon. The House approved the budget 332 to 94, with 169 Republicans and 163 Democrats voting in favor, and 62 Republicans and 32 Democrats voting against. The Senate will vote next week on the measure.
It’s one of the first bipartisan agreements reached by Congress in years.
