Congress averts a potential government shutdown by passing a bill to extend federal funding until March 1 and March 8. The Senate, voted 77-18, with the House passing it by 314-108. The bill now awaits the President’s signature before the current funding deadline expires tonight at midnight. This marks the third stopgap measure since September, highlighting the ongoing challenges in reaching a consensus on full-year government funding. The recent agreement between Speaker Mike Johnson and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer sets spending levels for the new year. The real question is – will we have another Continuing Resolution in March?
