Lawmakers approved the massive bill 256 to 167 on Thursday, just one day after it was made public.
The legislation now goes to the Senate. President Trump needs to sign the bill before Friday at midnight in order to avoid a government shutdown.
As we previously reported, the bill doesn't address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. It does include the Fix NICS Act, a provision aimed at strengthening the federal background check system for buying firearms. It also includes a roundabout way to secure funding for a rail project connecting New York and New Jersey.
