The House defeated a bill that would fund the government past Sept. 30 on Wednesday, raising fears of a possible government shutdown.

The bill would have provided $1.043 trillion to fund the government, in line with the debt ceiling deal reached in August.

The bill was voted down 230-195, with 48 conservative Republicans joining Democrats in opposition.

Congress has waited until the 11th hour twice this year to reach bipartisan agreements on spending.

The government came close to shutting down in April and came close to default in August.

“There is not going to be a shutdown. Everybody needs to relax,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said, according to Reuters.
