Keeping The Government Lights On

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

The government narrowly avoided a shutdown with a short-term spending bill passed by the House of Representatives yesterday. It will keep the government open through at least December 11.

The bill was a bi-partisan agreement and passed without much ado through the House. It is expected to pass the Senate later this week. The bill will cost $21 billion, $8 billion of which will go towards nutritional assistance for those who are struggling to feed their families.
