US Congress leaders reach deal to avoid partial government shutdown

US Congress leaders reach deal to avoid partial government shutdown

YEREVAN, FEBRUARY 29, ARMENPRESS. House and Senate leaders on Feb. 28 reached a bipartisan deal to avert a partial government shutdown ahead of a Friday deadline. Under terms of the deal, the House is expected to vote on Feb. 29 on a temporary funding bill. The Senate will vote soon after.

According to Reuters, the pact approved by House of Representatives and Senate leaders would pave the way for votes on a stopgap funding bill to keep the government operating normally through newly-set March 8 and March 22 deadlines, giving lawmakers time to examine and debate the full-year funding bills.

Both Republican and Democratic party leaders will now work on explaining the deal to their rank-and-file with the goal of convincing enough of them to back the arrangement.

The deal would put six of the 12 funding bills on a path to passage by March 8 with the remainder by March 22.
