Govt shutdown avoided as Trump withdraws threat & signs spending bill

Govt shutdown avoided as Trump withdraws threat & signs spending bill

"There are a lot of things I'm unhappy about in this bill", he told reporters, patting the more than 2,000 pages of the bill stacked on a purple box beside him in the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House. Leaders of both parties from the House Energy & Commerce Committee, the Senate Commerce Committee, and both chambers' appropriations committees worked to ensure new funds not only for now covered TV stations, but also for LPTV, translator, and FM radio stations that may be affected.

Now the bill heads to President Donald Trump's desk for his signature.

Criticizing several spending measures shoehorned into the bill, Trump called on Congress to grant the president a line-item veto power for spending bills.

A massive $1.3 trillion spending bill, which includes things like $51 million to subsidize global abortions, is headed to President Trump's desk for signing, but he just might veto. The era of trillion-dollar budget deficits is about make a comeback _ and a brewing budget deal hastened the arrival.

Earlier, the libertarian and former presidential candidate was back in his office, reading the bill and tweeting away. She added that this puts an end to fire-borrowing and is a start to giving the Forest Service the predictable resources they need to reduce hazardous fuels. "Only through a healthy investment in science can we develop more resilient food systems that protects the well-being of farmers and consumers".

Establishment Republican leaders praised the legislation.

Theresa May says Britain 'considering next steps' after Russian Federation expels 23 diplomats
With Russian help, Syrian forces have stepped up their offensive on rebel-held areas in recent days, leaving many dead. On Thursday the British government secured the backing of the leaders of the United States , France and Germany .

Of the 234 Republicans in the House of Representatives, only 67 voted against the February bill that would expand budget spending.

Instead, Trump won $1.6 billion to begin building and replacing segments of the wall along the border with Mexico. It does not address the DACA program, which provides protections for young undocumented immigrants.

Left out of the spending plan, however, were fixes meant to stabilize the Affordable Care Act's exchanges.

Today, President Trump signed the Omnibus Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2018, that includes an extension of the EB-5 program until September 30, 2018, along with the Conrad 30 program for foreign doctors and the Special Immigrant Religious Workers program.

The Gateway project has garnered bipartisan support among many NY and New Jersey lawmakers, including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and New Jersey Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, a Republican who chairs the House Appropriations Committee. "We wanted to include DACA and include them in this bill...[but] the Democrats would not do it".
