The Senate’s pension bill passed the House by a vote of 205 to 188 on Thursday, sending it to President Donald Trump for his signature.
The bill, known as the Better Care Reconciliation Act, is expected to raise $3.3 trillion over 10 years to pay for health care, infrastructure and other priorities.
But it would not include a $2 trillion increase for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) that the House passed earlier this year.
Instead, the Senate would use its own money to provide $1.1 trillion to pay off the government’s existing flood insurance fund.
The Senate also is expected in the coming days to approve an emergency funding package for the military and other agencies.
The GOP’s victory in the House on Thursday will likely push the legislation past the Senate.
While the House’s vote was largely symbolic, it is unlikely to have much effect on Trump’s agenda.
Democrats and many Republicans have opposed the Senate’s plan.
Democrats have called the bill a giveaway to big business, while Republicans have argued that the Senate has taken too much power from the president and that it will not address the looming threat of a potential government shutdown.
Republicans have also pointed to the $2 billion in funding that the president has pledged for the NFIP as a major boost to the program.
