U.S. House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) (C) walks to his office after passage of a spending bill on the House floor at the U.S. Capitol in Washington December 11, 2014. The U.S. House of Representatives passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill late on Thursday to fund most federal agencies through Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year. By a vote of 219-206, the House approved the bill, which would fund the Department of Homeland Security only through February to give Republicans a chance early next year to try to stop President Barack Obama’s immigration reforms that are largely carried out by DHS.
