The House revoted Wednesday on a Democratic-backed short-term spending bill to fund the government through Feb. 28, passing the legislation in a 229-184 vote.

Democratic leaders brought the measure back up for a vote following chaos on the House floor last week. The measure initially passed the lower chamber in a voice vote on Thursday, but Republicans called foul when their request for a roll call was not granted.

The article goes on to state the following:

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) later requested to vacate that vote and bring the measure back to the floor after lawmakers returned from their three-day holiday weekend.

Six Republicans joined Democrats on Wednesday in voting for the funding bill: GOP Reps. Elise Stefanik(N.Y.), Will Hurd(Texas), John Katko (N.Y.), Chris Smith (N.J.), Jaime Herrera Beutler (Wash.) and Brian Fitzpatrick (Pa.).

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) was the lone Democrat to vote against the bill.
