A bill to keep the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) funded during the shutdown garnered bipartisan support yesterday, with Democratic Colorado Congressmen Jared Polis and Ed Perlmutter joining House Republicans to pass the bill 247-164. Denver Congresswoman Diana DeGette didn’t show up for the vote.

The White House has not taken a stance on the measure, despite supporting a bill that would provide back pay to federal workers once the shutdown ends.

The bill now moves to the U.S. Senate, where Colorado Senators Mark Udall and Michael Bennet will have to decide whether to provide funding for this critical federal agency during shutdown negotiations, or continue refusing to fund anything but the entire federal government.
