U.S. House Speaker John Boehner said on Sunday the House of Representatives will pass the Senate’s government funding bill this week, avoiding a government shutdown when the new fiscal year starts on Thursday.

Boehner, speaking on CBS’ “Face the Nation” program, said the funding legislation would be accompanied by the creation of a separate, special committee to investigate an abortion controversy involving Planned Parenthood. The Senate’s government funding bill will not include provisions to deny funding to the non-profit healthcare group.
