House Passes a Stopgap Bill to Keep Govt Funded Over Weekend


What Happened:

  • 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.
