Congress is preparing to vote Thursday evening in order to avoid a government shutdown.
The bill for short-term government funding will help provide billions to communities damaged.
Many other bills are in the mix to be voted on this week too, with President Joe Biden’s domestic agenda at stake.

Many lawmakers remain at odds over the amount of spending, struggling to get the bills across the finish line.
