House Passes Senate $15.2 Billion Harvey Relief, Debt Ceiling Bill


The House of Representatives voted Friday morning to pass the Senate’s proposal to provide $15.2 billion in emergency relief funding for the victims of Hurricane Harvey, raise the debt ceiling, and fund the government through mid-December.

The House passed the Senate’s revised bill Friday with a vote of 316-90, with all “no” votes coming from Republicans. The bill will send roughly $7.4 billion to FEMA, $7.4 billion to the Department of Housing and Urban Development and another $450 million to the Small Business Administration.

Senate lawmakers voted 80-17 on Thursday in favor of a bill that would provide emergency relief for those affected by Harvey, as well as raise the debt ceiling and keep the government funded for several months. All 17 votes against the measure came from Republicans.

The Senate’s vote came off the heels of the measure passed in the House Wednesday, which allocated $7.85 billion for Harvey relief funding with near-unanimous support.

The legislation, which now makes its way to President Donald Trump’s desk for approval, is likely the result of a contentious deal struck in the Oval Office Wednesday afternoon. Instead of aligning with members of his own party and administration, Trump agreed to raise the debt limit and fund the federal government through mid-December, allowing members of Congress to deal with the budget in the coming months.
