The House will vote on a temporary spending package that includes $5 billion in funding for a southern border wall.
The House Rules Committee advanced the measure 8-2 Thursday, sending it to the House floor for a vote. The measure also includes about $8.7 billion in funding for states impacted by hurricanes and wildfires.
“I would anticipate we will move it very rapidly to the floor,” Rules Committee Chairman Pete Sessions, R-Texas, said.
Sessions predicted the House would “pass the bill,” but advised the rules panel to “be standing by.”
It’s not clear whether the House GOP actually has the votes to pass the measure with wall funding and lawmakers could end up taking another vote on a bill that excludes the wall funding.
