The House and Senate have both approved a measure Friday, January 25, to temporarily reopen the federal government with a short-term spending bill. It does not include the 5.7 billion in border wall funding that has been demanded by the President. The bill now has to be signed by President Trump before officially ending the devastating shutdown
Approval of the measure came shortly after the President conceded early Friday to rising pressure over the longest shutdown in our country's history, agreeing to a temporary funding measure that would allow federal employees to return to work. "I will sign a bill to open our government for three weeks," the President said in an address given today.
According to Trump " a bipartisan conference committee of House and Senate lawmakers and leaders" will work to "put together a homeland security package for me to shortly sign into law."
