The bill is now being sent to President Trump for final approval.

Earlier this month, Senator Thom Tillis introduced a similar bill called the Protecting Lawful Streaming Act.
"The shift towards online content streaming has resulted in criminal streaming services illegally distributing copyrighted material that costs the US economy nearly $ 30 billion each year and producing creative content that Americans love , disabled, "said Tillis in a statement.
In addition, the bill includes $ 1.4 billion for President Donald Trump's southern border wall, lifts bans on using federal funds for transportation to support abandoned schools, increases military spending by 3%, and approves funding for a Smithsonian Women's History Museum and the National Museum of the American Latino, and increased funding for broadband.
The text of the collective law reads: "$ 500,000,000 to be used for Israeli cooperative programs 6." Funding for other countries - including $ 500 million for Jordanian defense spending and $ 33 million for Venezuela's democracy programs - was also included in the bill.
The bill also contains provisions for the reincarnation of the Dalai Lama.
MEP Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the members of Congress had actually read the text for the 5,000-page collective draft only a few hours before the vote.
"It's not good enough to know what's in the bill. Members of Congress need to see and read the bills that we are likely to vote on," she said. "I know it's 'controversial' and I get in trouble if I share things like that, but the people of this country deserve to know. They deserve better."
The bill is now being sent to President Donald Trump for final approval. He is expected to sign later this week.
