House Passes a Stopgap Bill to Keep Govt Funded Over Weekend
On Friday evening, the House passed a stopgap funding bill to keep the government funded over the weekend. The bill was passed with just hours to go before the midnight deadline.
Now the measure will go to the Senate and will require a quick approval of all 100 Senators to avoid a government shutdown at midnight.
If passed, the extension will allow Congress to continue negotiations for a new COVID Relief Bill over the weekend which several hope to tie together to the new government spending bill.
