The House approved a temporary funding bill Thursday to keep the federal government running through next Tuesday.
The bill passed by a unanimous vote, allowing House lawmakers more time to vote on another measure approved by the Senate, extending government funding through Nov. 18.
Earlier in the week, Republicans and Democrats resolved their differences over disaster funding, the main point of contention during the largely partisan dispute.
