BREAKING: House votes to fund FDA past shutdown

The U.S. House of Representatives voted tonight to fund the FDA until the federal shutdown ends or until Dec. 15, whichever comes first.

The lower chamber approved on a 235-162 vote a joint resolution by Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) that restores funding to the level established by sequestration, which is about $200 million less than originally authorized.

The measure is unlikely to pass muster in the Senate, where majority leader Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) has vowed to shoot down any proposed stop-gap funding legislation.
