Last night (March 21, 2018), Congress released the text of a comprehensive appropriations bill that would provide funding for the federal government through the remainder of the fiscal year, which runs until September 30, 2018. Although some legislators, including members of the House Freedom Caucus, have publicly opposed the legislation, the bipartisan negotiations and subsequent press releases indicate that the bill will ultimately pass as written. This afternoon, the House passed the bill on a 256-167 vote and the Senate is expected to clear it before tomorrow’s deadline.
