The House of Representatives approved a major budget deal early Friday morning, ending a brief government shutdown overnight and sending the measure to the President for his signature, according to a CNN report.
The House vote was 240-186. The GOP-controlled chamber needed help from House Democrats to clear the bill.
The Senate approved the measure earlier on Friday morning. The federal government shuttered for the second time in less than a month overnight, after Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul prevented the deal from passing Thursday ahead of a shutdown deadline.
Congressional negotiators scrambled all day Thursday and early Friday morning to lock in enough votes in the House.
