By a vote of 388-5, the House passed the measure, which was unanimously approved on Tuesday by the Senate. It now goes to President Donald Trump for signing into law.
Pelosi receives 220 votes for speaker while US Republican Representative Kevin McCarthy gets 192 votes. She will serve as speaker for second time.
