U.S. House to Vote on Russia Oil Ban, Ukraine Aid and Government Spending

The bills are all expected to pass

The U.S. House of Representatives was poised on Wednesday for a critical series of votes that would ban U.S. imports of Russian oil, provide emergency aid to Ukraine and fund the federal government through Sept. 30.

With funding for federal agencies set to expire at midnight on Friday, the House was also set to vote on a failsafe stop-gap resolution to ensure the government stays open through March 15, should the Senate prove unable to pass the more comprehensive spending legislation known as an "omnibus" bill.

Lawmakers were expected to begin with a mid-morning vote to adopt the rules for a floor debate that would precede final votes on passage later in the day.
