美国众议院星期四批准了1.3万亿美元的开支法案,从而推动了会防止政府关门的计划。

这项法案在众议院以256对167票的表决结果获得通过,现在送交参议院。参议院需要在星期五午夜前批准这项法案,以避免今年第三次政府关门。

众议院投票前,这项近2200页的法案在星期三晚间公布于众。因为这项法案很可能是今年内通过的最重要的立法项目,议员们争相在法案中加入他们自己的开支动议。

两党共同推出的这项庞大的开支案将使得联邦政府获得可以维持到今年9月底的经费。这项法案还将实现川普总统增加军费的诺言,但同时限制了他的大部分移民改革计划。

白宫表示,川普总统支持这项法案,法案将使川普总统得以大幅提高军费,其中包括为军方人员加薪百分之2.4。

The U.S. House of Representatives Thursday approved a $1.3 trillion spending bill, which advances the plan that could prevent a government shutdown.The measure, approved by a 256-167 vote, now goes to the Senate, which has until midnight Friday night to approve it and avert the year's third government closure. The House vote came hours after the nearly 2,200 page bill was released Wednesday night. Because the bill is most likely to be the last significant legislation passed this year, lawmakers scrambled to include their own spending proposals.The massive bipartisan bill would keep the government funded until the end of September. The measure would fulfill U.S. President Donald Trump's vow to boost military funding while restricting much of his immigration agenda. The bill, which the White House said Trump supports, would give Trump a huge budget increase for the military, including a 2.4 percent pay raise for military personnel.
