But there is much more that lawmakers would like to finish before getting out of town for the Christmas break, and the end of the 115th Congress - some of those items include:
+ A revised major farm policy bill
+ Sexual harassment reforms in the Congress
+ A criminal justice reform bill backed by the President
+ A package of special tax breaks known as the 'tax extenders'
But there is also the chance that much of that could get bogged down in the Legislative Mud at the end of this Congressional session, as Democrats get ready to take over the House in January.
One item added on to the two-week budget was a two-week extension for the federal flood insurance program; lawmakers had hoped to gain agreement on broader reforms, but that seems unlikely to happen - again - in 2018.
