The House voted 264-155 to extend FAA funding past Saturday’s deadline until March 31, 2018. The measure also includes relief for people affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria. Members also debated a bill that prohibits Social Security payments to individuals with outstanding felony warrants and was combined with a bill reauthorizing a Department of Health and Human Services early childhood home visits program. Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) addressed colleagues for the first time on the House floor since he was seriously injured in a shooting at a June baseball practice game in Virginia.
