If President Biden approves the bill, it will fund the government through next fall and give an additional 45 billion dollars to the war effort in Ukraine.
The Senate passed the bill with bipartisan approval on Thursday, but nine Republicans broke ranks to vote for it in the House.
The bill allocates a lot of money for military and domestic programs. Senate Democrats had to negotiate a higher defense budget to win the GOP vote and push the legislation before they lose control of the House.
Schumer said that the appropriations bill was one of the most significant pieces of legislation passed by Congress in a long time.
Schumer said in the Senate that the Senate is funding the government with an aggressive investment in American families, workers and national defense.
The funding deadline was extended for one more week so the bill could be ready for Biden.
Following President Zelensky's visit to Washington D.C. this week, the bill pledges further support to Ukraine with a multi-billion dollar spending package for military assistance, such as weapons and training. The bill grants $38 billion in disaster relief, which could be used to help communities recover from disasters.
The last must-pass bill from this session of Congress included dozens of random initiatives. There is a proposal to ban TikTok on government devices, strengthen anti- discrimination policies for pregnant employees, enhance retirement plans, and give more funding to the EPA.
The bill makes it harder to overturn the results of a presidential election in response to former President Trump trying to stay in power after his reelection loss in 2020. Funding for US attorneys to prosecute those involved in the January 6 Capitol Riots is included.
The child tax credit, which many Democrats have been vying for to reduce child poverty, was not improved in the bill. 19 million people could lose their Medicaid benefits if the bill is passed, but they could still qualify for other health programs.
