1 min read

President Donald Trump signed Thursday another continuing resolution to fund the federal government at current spending levels through Dec. 20 and avoid a government shutdown, CBS News reported.

The president’s signature came hours after the Senate voted 74-20 to approve the four-week stopgap funding bill. The House passed the CR by a 231-192 vote Tuesday.

The measure funds a 3.1 percent salary increase for military personnel, appropriates $7.2B for the 2020 Census, reauthorizes the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act’s provisions and extends several health care programs.
