The House approved the $1.3 trillion budget to fund the government through the 2018 fiscal year, allowing federal services to stay open but hampers many of President Donald Trump’s agenda items.

The lower chamber approved the budget 256 – 167, but oddly enough, most of the dissenting votes came from Republicans, who hold the majority, and not Democrats.

Ninety Republican members of the House voted against the bill, compared to 77 dissenting Democrat votes. In total, 145 Republicans and 111 Democrats voted in favor of a bill.

House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have sold the bill on an $80 billion increase in defense investment, but otherwise the legislation not advance many conservative or even Trump administration priorities.

The bill provides $1.5 billion for physical barriers, technology advancements and more agents for the southern border, but doesn’t provide funding for any new wall prototypes. The bill also limits how many Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents can be hired, continues funding for sanctuary cities and Planned Parenthood.

The Senate has a little more than a day to consider the bill before the government runs out of funds and shuts down at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.

(Editor’s note: Rep. Jason Lewis also voted no)
