Congress to vote on Schumer-Johnson deal to avert government shutdown
Key Congressional leaders will vote this week on a funding agreement to extend government spending into March.

US House Speaker Mike Johnson and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer have agreed on a topline funding agreement — called a Continuing Resolution (CR) — to extend funding to 1 March and 8 March, avoiding the first funding deadline of 19 January.

Congressional officials released the full text of the resolution on Sunday evening.

“Last week, House Republicans achieved an improved topline agreement that will finally allow the House and Senate to complete the annual appropriations bills,” Mr Johnson said in a statement.

“If Republicans want to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in the election this year, fail to fund the government,” Republican Senator Thom Tillis said, per Punchbowl News.
