THIS MORNING -- CHEERS TO NO SHUTDOWN (FOR NOW): The House has cleared a short-term measure to avoid a government shutdown and raise the debt limit through December. Don't forget: This was the deal President Trump struck with Democrats. The vote: 316-90; all of the no votes were from Republicans. Also in the bill: More than $15 billion in disaster recovery aid for communities affected by Hurricane Harvey. http://bit.ly/2xbrJ9h

What now: It goes to President Trump's desk. He's expected to sign it into law later today.
