The U.S. Congress extended funding for the government until January 19

Now approved, the resolution must be signed by the President trump

The U.S. Senate voted on Thursday evening, December 21, the resolution on temporary financing of the Federal government until January 19, 2018. It is the third such resolution in this year, the Senate approved by 66 votes to 32. The preceding resolution was adopted at the beginning of December, and her term expires on Friday.

Taking the bill after the U.S. House of representatives, the senators helped the White house avoid the closure of Federal institutions. However, this would need another formality – in order to approve a resolution entered into force, it must be signed by the President, Donald trump.

In addition to funding the government, Congress provided funds to the Pentagon to support missile defense, as well as the programme of U.S. intelligence surveillance abroad.
