The U.S. House today passed another short-term bill to fund the federal government, but more than 50 fiscal and Tea Party conservatives defied GOP leaders on the vote.

The temporary measure that funds the government expires Friday.

The bill passed today is a stopgap measure, which includes $6 billion in cuts to government programs, that will run out April 8. The final vote was 271-158.
