December 19th – The Hill reported on the 18th that Trump has signed a temporary spending bill to avoid the shutdown of the U.S. government. The bill will continue to provide 48 hours of funding for the government.
Earlier on the 18th, the U.S. Congress passed a two-day temporary spending bill, which was passed by the House of Representatives by 320 votes to 60, and the Senate unanimously passed it. Trump signed the bill at 10 p.m. on the 18th.
It is reported that the adoption of this interim expenditure bill is that 12 annual appropriation bills covering the fiscal year from October 1 have not been enacted, and the comprehensive expenditure bill that integrates these bills has not yet been negotiated.
At the same time, lawmakers also hope to tie the stimulus package of more than $900 billion to the comprehensive spending bill.
