Senate Ends First Year Under Trump By Voting To Prevent Shutdown


The Senate approved a stopgap spending bill on Thursday night, ensuring there will be no shutdown days before the holidays and essentially completing a frenetic year on Capitol Hill — and the first under President Trump.

Senators voted 66-32 to approve the roughly four-week continuing resolution (CR), which funds the government through Jan. 19, hours after it passed the House.

Seventeen Democrats voted for the measure, including several up for reelection next year in states carried by Trump such as Sens. Joe Donnelly (Ind.), Claire McCaskill (Mo.) and Joe Manchin (V.Wa.). Read more  at The Hill.
