Biden signed the government funding bill

US President Joe Biden signed a bill to fund part of the US government until the end of the fiscal year.

This is reported by the White House .

Thanks to Leaders Schumer and McConnell, Senators Murray and Collins, Speaker Mike Johnson, Leader Jeffries, and Representatives Granger and DeLauro for their leadership, the White House said.

The US Congress plans to pass a second package of six remaining full-year funding bills on March 22. The package would apply to the Departments of Defense, Homeland Security, Health and Human Services.

Threat of shutdown in the USA

The US Congress has been unable to agree on a budget for the 2024 fiscal year since September 2023. Republicans have demanded spending cuts and increased border security.

However, U.S. lawmakers have managed several times to agree on temporary funding for the government to prevent a shutdown — a shutdown of federal agencies — and agree on annual funding.

Today, the US Senate followed the House of Representatives in approving funding for half of government agencies through the end of this fiscal year. After that, the document was handed over to the US president for signature.
