The short-term spending measure falls on a 195-230 vote
More than 40 Republicans join Democrats in opposing it
Washington (CNN) -- In a major blow to the Republican
leadership, the U.S. House on Wednesday defeated
a temporary spending measure that would have required
spending cuts to offset additional money for federal
disaster relief efforts.
The vote was 195-230, with more than 40 Republicans
joining all but a handful of minority Democrats in
opposing the short-term spending plan that would keep
the government funded for seven weeks after the end of
the fiscal year on September 30.
