The House passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill Friday morning, leaving the Senate to clear the omnibus for the president’s signature a little later in the day. Legislation to fund government operations through the remainder of fiscal 2016 passed, 316-113, with Democrats shoring up the majority of support but Republicans boasting a significantly larger number than they’ve had on previous catch-all appropriations packages.
