The US House of Representatives has passed a government spending bill, which temporarily averts a US government shutdown.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — On Wednesday, the Republican controlled House voted 277-151 on legislation that will keep government operations running, after the US Senate earlier in the day approved the resolution to fund the federal government through December 11.

The spending bill was sent to US President Barack Obama after the Wednesday House vote. Obama signed the spending extension legislation later on Wednesday, according to a White House statement.

In 2013, the US Congress could not agree either on an annual federal budget or a short-term funding bill, which led to a partial US government shutdown.
