UNITED STATES PASSES 1.3 TRILLION DOLLAR BILL TO AVERT SHUTDOWN

The US Senate has passed a 1.3 trillion dollar federal spending bill, overcoming hurdles that threatened to send the government into its third shutdown this year.

It now goes to the White House to be signed by President Donald Trump, whose aides have said he supports the bill.

The measure boosts military and domestic spending, increases border security, funds infrastructure and student loan projects, and includes provisions to reduce gun violence, but does not address protections for undocumented immigrants or efforts to stabilize health insurance prices.
