The bill is "clean," which means it does not include any provisions that would prevent its passage.
"We're just bringing a clean, what we call a vanilla CR," said Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.). "No games, no sneaky things. Just a CR to get us through this moment to get us into next year. It's as clean and simple as possible."
The bill includes $2.85 billion to fund the Children's Health Insurance Program and $750 million for community health centers and diabetes programs. It also includes $4.7 billion for the Department of Defense for missile defense programs and ship repair. The continuing resolution also extends FISA 702, a foreign surveillance warrant program.
The House is expected to vote on the measure Thursday.
"It remained unclear exactly what the Senate would do if the House passes the measure—offer a separate spending package, or just vote to send the House CR to President Donald Trump's desk before midnight on Friday," the article states.
