The Senate reached a bipartisan agreement intended to end a dispute over disaster relief spending that threatened to cause a partial shutdown of the government at the end of the week.
In two votes, the Senate approved short-term spending measures to fund the government for the start of the new fiscal year that begins Saturday. The deal hinged on FEMA’s new assessment that it has sufficient funding for the rest of the current fiscal year.
The measures now go to the House, which would need to approve them to ensure the government continues to be funded after Friday. [CNN]
