U.S. Senate passes bill funding government through Dec. 11, sends to Trump

·1 min read

WASHINGTON, Sept 30 (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate approved on Wednesday a temporary funding bill to keep the government open through Dec. 11, sending the measure to President Donald Trump for signing into law.

Government funding runs out at midnight Wednesday (0400 GMT on Thursday). The legislation, which had previously passed the House of Representatives, and passed the Senate on a vote of 84-10, continues funding most programs at current levels.

Assuming Trump signs the bill, it will avoid a government shutdown in the middle of a pandemic and ahead of the Nov. 3 U.S. elections. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell; Editing by Sandra Maler)
