Congress to Host Anti-Israel Forum, Sparking Outrage on Hill » US-POLITICS-BUDGET

The US Congress easily passed a one-week stopgap spending bill Friday, assuring there is no embarrassing government shutdown on the 100th day of Donald Trump’s presidency. After weeks of tense negotiations over federal spending, the measure sailed through the House and Senate just hours before a midnight deadline. The bill extends current funding levels until May 5, giving lawmakers in the Republican-controlled Congress one week of breathing room to hash out a measure that funds government operations through September, when the fiscal year ends.
