WASHINGTON - The U.S. Senate on Monday approved by an 81-to-18 vote a measure to fund the federal government through Feb. 8, sending the bill to the House of Representatives.

The House is expected to quickly vote on and pass the measure, which also includes a six-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). It would then be sent to President Donald Trump for his signature, ending a three-day government shutdown.
