HURRAY! The Government Is Open, Almost
The recent deal struck to end the federal shutdown still needs to pass congress.
The Senate passed the measure January 25. The House is expected to take it up as soon as possible. Once the measure passes the House, it must go to Trump for his signature. Then negotiations begin for a budget deal to fund the government long-term, after the Feb. 15 expiration of the stopgap measure. (Source: NAR)
