Congress passed a four-week spending bill Thursday, averting a government shutdown for now, but once again postponing difficult negotiations on budget disagreements. President Donald Trump signed the bill into law Friday.
Background: The House of Representatives and Senate approved the four-week spending bill Thursday, marking the second time this month that Congress opted for a short-term spending measure to avoid a shutdown. Elected officials will now grapple with budget disagreements in January, after the holiday break.
BAL Analysis: Congressional approval of the stopgap spending measure eliminates the possibility of a government shutdown for now. However, the short-term extension does little to resolve a difficult budget fight, which has now been pushed off into January.
