House to vote on spending package to avert shutdown: Live coverage

The House on Wednesday is slated to vote on a package of six fiscal year 2024 spending bills, the first full-year bills to come up for a vote more than five months into the fiscal year.

The measure is expected to come up under a suspension of the rules, denying conservatives the chance to sink it on a procedural vote, and looks likely to pass.

But conservatives are expressing outrage over the price tag, the exclusion of a number of policy priorities, the packaging of six bills together and the decision to bring it up under suspension. Speaker Mike Johnson (R-La.) has endorsed the legislation.

Republicans are scheduled to hold a meeting this morning, with votes to follow in the afternoon.
