Members of the U.S. House of Representatives in West Virginia and Ohio voted for the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 based on the compromise reached by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash.

The spending bill late prevents another government shutdown until October and sets spending limits for federal agencies until the end of the fiscal year on Sept. 30.

The Ryan-Murray compromise reached in December stopped an automatic $63 billion in sequestration cuts in defense and non-defense spending over two years and saves $85 billion from cuts and new revenue in 10 years.

Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., Rep. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., Rep. Bill Johnson, R-Ohio, and Rep. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., voted for the bill that passed the House 359-67. Most of the votes against were Republicans.
