WASHINGTON (AP) - The House of Representatives has passed a $1.4 trillion government-wide spending package, handing President Donald Trump a victory on his U.S.-Mexico border wall.
It also gives Democrats spending increases across a swath of domestic programs. Democrats and Republicans have been fighting for months over spending priorities.
The 2,371-page legislation calls for $1.4 trillion in federal spending to head off a government shutdown that would otherwise take place this weekend.
The compromise bill gives both sides some of what they want as well as some of what they don't want. President Trump is expected to sign the two-bill package.
