- The U.S. Senate voted 84-10 Wednesday to advance a temporary funding bill to keep the government open through Dec. 11, sending the measure to President Donald Trump where he is expected to sign the bill into law. The Democratic-led House of Representatives approved the measure a week ago.
- Government funding runs out at midnight tonight, and the legislationwould maintain current funding levels for most programs, avoiding a government shutdown in the middle of a pandemic and weeks ahead of the Nov. 3 election.
- The legislation's Dec. 11 end date will require Congress to return to the government funding question again during its post-election lame-duck session, after what is likely to be a bruising fight to confirm Trump's third Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.
- Congressional Democrats have had a turbulent relationship with the White House over federal funding since 2017. Disagreeing over Trump's demands for billions of dollars to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall, Washington failed to come to agreement and the government shutdown for 35 days from Dec. 2018 to Jan. 2019.
