Capitol Hill is quiet on New Year's Eve as a partial government shutdown continues. The stalemate is unlikely to be resolved before a new Congress convenes on Thursday.

House Democrats Approve To End Government Shutdown

House Democrats approved Thursday night a spending package to re-open the partially closed government that does not include any money for President Donald Trump’s border wall.

In a series of mostly party-line votes, the new Democratic majority passed a measure that would fund the Department of Homeland Security at current levels through Feb. 8, the Associated Press reported. The bill passed 239-192.

A separate bill would fund the Departments of Agriculture and Interior and other agencies through Sept. 30. That bill passed 241-190.
