December 11 U.S. President Trump signed a week-long interim appropriation bill on the evening of the 11th to provide funds to the federal government to avoid the federal government’s “closure”.
Because the U.S. federal government will run out of funds on the 11th, the Senate urgently approved the bill earlier that day, which will provide funds for the federal government until the 18th. The House of Representatives of Congress passed the bill by 343 votes to 67 on the 9th.
Next, both houses of the United States must pass the relevant budget before the 18th, or they will once again face the dilemma of running out of funds and the government “closure”.
The U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives Appropriations Committee have previously reached a $1.4 trillion annual budget outline for fiscal year 2021. However, the two parties have not yet agreed on the specific allocation of funds. Therefore, the risk of the federal government’s “closure” on the 18th has not been lifted.
