Here Are the 10 Republicans Who Broke With Party To Vote for New Funding Bill
Ten House Republicans broke ranks and voted for a short-term funding bill on Friday that will avert a government shutdown.
The bill that cleared the lower chamber in a 230-201 vote will fund the government at previous fiscal year levels until Dec. 16.
Republican Reps. Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio, Garret Graves of Louisiana, Chris Jacobs of New York, John Katko of New York, Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Patrick McHenry of North Carolina, Hal Rogers of Kentucky, Fred Upton of Michigan and Steve Womack of Arkansas joined all voting Democrats in supporting the measure.
Included in the resolution is more than $12 billion in security and financial assistance for Ukraine, $2 billion for U.S. disaster relief, $2.5 billion for wildfires in New Mexico and $1 billion for home heating assistance. It also reauthorizes Food and Drug Administration user fees for five years.
The Senate passed the bill in a bipartisan 72-25 vote on Thursday. The measure now heads to President Biden’s desk for his signature. The government shutdown the funding bill is in place to avoid would have been triggered at midnight.
