The House on Thursday voted to extend federal tax relief for some people and businesses that have been hit by the debt crisis.
The measure, which passed 227-193, gives the Treasury Department and Treasury Department workers who have experienced hardship to pay down debts on an installment schedule.
It also allows federal workers to claim unemployment benefits for up to six months.
House Republicans also included a new rule that allows employers to deduct payroll taxes on their federal tax returns, which could be a boon to employers who are struggling with the economic downturn.
The House also passed a bill that would allow the Department of Homeland Security to suspend all deportations for those who came to the U.S. illegally as children.
The bill also allows the Justice Department to sue states that refuse to enforce federal immigration law, a move Republicans have criticized as too harsh.
It was also the second time in less than two weeks that the House voted on a debt-crisis relief bill, which also passed 229-191.
The last vote on a tax bill was last week, when Republicans passed a measure that extended unemployment benefits and paid down debt for some workers.
Democrats are also expected to introduce a measure later in the week that would prohibit the Treasury from using funds from the emergency spending bill to repay government debt.
The legislation would also limit the debt ceiling for a year and keep Congress from raising the debt limit for another month.
