The US Congress on Thursday approved a temporary funding bill to prevent federal agencies from shutting down at midnight Friday when existing money was set to expire.

Congress has voted to prevent a government shutdown as the House and Senate in rapid succession approved a stopgap spending bill to keep agencies running through January 19. They will try to pass an "omnibus "spending bill to fund the government from January 19 to September 30, 2018".

The House bill includes a modest increase of $4.7 billion for the Department of Defense to be used for missile defense and ship fix. Democrats and Republicans will continue negotiations on higher funding for both military and non-military programs.

Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., chair of the Republican Conference, prepare to speak to reporters after passing the GOP tax reform bill in the House of Representatives, on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 19, 2017. Democrats want to do more for Puerto Rico and some Republicans worry about the mounting costs of disaster aid.

Obamacare: Senators put off until early next year their bid to maintain healthcare subsidies for low-income people participating in the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. Republicans muscled the most sweeping rewrite of the nation's tax laws in more than three decades through the House.

But that would push a number of unresolved issues into the New Year.

In the end, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus and immigration advocacy groups failed.

The Senate could take up the measure on Thursday night, even as some Democrats pushed to include protections for young immigrants who entered the country illegally as children, popularly known as "Dreamers".
