House Republicans passed two different versions of legislation to keep the government open. One would enact a one-year delay of the entire health law, while the other would repeal a tax on medical devices — everything from oxygen tanks to wheelchairs — that is part of the health law.

Both bills would keep the government funded through Dec. 15, or a month longer than Senate Democrats proposed in their bill, which passed on a party-line 54-46 vote on Friday.

The House also passed a bill to ensure that American troops continue to get paid in the event of a government shutdown. That passed unanimously, though lawmakers from the Washington region, who represent large numbers of federal workers, said they wished all employees were included in the bill.

“This bill does not cover the FBI. It doesn’t cover CIA,” Mr. Hoyer said.
