Funding bill passed by House includes $8 billion in nutrition aid

By a vote of 359-57, the House passed a continuing resolution (CR)—stopgap funding bill—to keep the federal government running through Dec. 11. The measure includes nearly $8 billion in nutrition aid to help keep schoolchildren and families from going hungry. The CR must be approved by the Senate and signed by President Trump by Sept. 30 or portions of the federal government will shut down due to lack of funding.
