The immediate threat for a government shutdown was averted late Saturday with a temporary funding bill. President Joe Biden signed the deal to keep government agencies open after a late push by Congress to reach a bipartisan deal.
The temporary package does not include Ukrainian aid but does increase federal disaster assistance monies by roughly $16 billion. This reprieve of a government shutdown may be short-lived. The current package funds the government until mid-November with a House vote of 339-91 and the Senate by a 88-9 vote.
