House Democrats on Wednesday approved a measure to enact President Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion emergency spending package on a party-line vote without Republican support.

The vote to approve the budget resolution passed 218-212. Two Democratic lawmakers opposed it along with every GOP lawmaker.

The passage of the budget bill in the House sets the stage for the Senate to take up the same piece of legislation later this week. It’s the first step in the reconciliation process, a maneuver that opens special procedures in the Senate that allow bills to pass with a simple majority vote.
