WASHINGTON - The US House of Representatives on Tuesday passed a bill that puts the government on stable financial footing for six weeks but does nothing to resolve a dispute over spending that is likely to flare again next month.

By a bipartisan vote of 352 to 66, the House passed a bill that funds government programs at their current levels through Nov. 18. The measure, which passed the Senate last week, now heads to US President Barack Obama to sign into law.
