Aiden signs bill to avoid US government shutdown

On Friday, President Joe Biden signed a temporary bill passed by Congress earlier than the midnight deadline to avoid forcing the US government to shutdown due to lack of funding.

And the White House said, in a statement today, Friday, that, “The document was signed as a legislative act,” noting that Biden thanked the lawmakers who participated in working on this document.

Earlier, on Thursday, the US Congress passed a bill to avoid a government shutdown.

A majority of the US House of Representatives voted to approve a measure passed by the Senate that avoids a partial government shutdown by funding federal agencies during the new fiscal year that begins on Friday.

The bill now heads to President Joe Biden, who is expected to sign the measure into law before the midnight deadline, when current government funding is about to expire.

Closures carry significant economic costs, with the Congressional Budget Office estimating that the 2018-2019 shutdown affected fourth-quarter US GDP by $3 billion.

The looming shutdown now could be particularly harmful. In 2018, Congress had already enacted five of the 12 appropriations bills needed to keep the government running, but so far this year, none have passed.
