Govt Shutdown Averted With Two-Day Spending Bill

CNBC reports:

President Donald Trump signed a two-day government funding bill into law Friday night as Congress tries to buy time to strike a spending and coronavirus relief deal.

The president inked the legislation to keep the government running about an hour-and-a-half before a midnight deadline to pass spending legislation.

The stopgap measure would fund federal operations through Sunday until 12:01 a.m. ET Monday morning while congressional leaders try to finalize a full-year funding and coronavirus relief package.
