US President Biden signed an interim budget and postponed the shutdown
US President Joe Biden signed a law extending government funding until February 18, 2022 and thereby prevented a shutdown (blocking of work) that threatened the executive branch, the White House website reported.
The head of state signed law HR 6119 and postponed the shutdown. The document provides for the allocation of funds to federal agencies until February 18, 2022. The money, among other things, will go to support the citizens evacuated from Afghanistan.
The current funding period ends on the night of December 4. The document was previously approved by Congress.
In October, Biden signed an interim budget. Then the US Senate and House of Representatives approved a bill to continue funding the federal government until December 3 to avoid its shutdown.
