Congress approves bill ending brief government shutdown
The U.S. House of Representatives early on Friday approved a bill to fund the federal government through March 23 and to increase overall spending limits over two years, sending the legislation to President Donald Trump.
The bill, approved 240-186, would end an hours-long government shutdown that started on Thursday at midnight when current government funding expired. Trump is expected to sign the bill into law. The Senate approved it earlier on Friday.
