The House passed Wednesday two partial spending bills, less than 24 hours after piecemeal measures failed to clear the chamber.

The bill to fund the National Park Service passed 252-173.

The bill to fund the National Institutes of Health passed 254-171.

Senate Democratic leaders have already said the bills won’t clear that chamber, and the White House has threatened to veto them.

The House is expected to vote Thursday on bills to fund part of the Department of Veteran Affairs and the National Guard and military reserve.
