Trump signs bill ending USA government shutdown

The Reuters Graphic: North Korea stages show of force with new missiles during parade

President Trump has demanded funding for the border wall be included in any legislation to address a permanent solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which expires March 5.

He calls the spending plan a "BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes". He says non-military spending "will never come down" without electing more Republicans in the 2018 elections.

At least two congressional Democrats said they would introduce bills to block federal funding from being used for a military parade.

The House of Representatives cleared the measure early Friday morning in a 240-186 vote, with 73 Democratic members voting for passage.

Trump tweets, "Just signed Bill. We'll send them up to the White House for a decision".

First human eggs grown in lab in fertility 'breakthrough'
Scientists have previously developed mouse eggs to produce live offspring and matured human eggs from a late stage of development. This exact balance that leads to maturity of the eggs within a females body had hitherto never been replicated in the laboratory.

The colossal bill, which lawmakers had been negotiating for months, is a game-changing piece of legislation, clearing the decks for Congress in dealing with major spending issues as well as doling out disaster relief money and hiking the debt ceiling, which was set to be reached next month.

But in an unexpected turn of events, the deadline was missed because Kentucky Republican Senator Rand Paul, objecting to deficit spending in the bill, engaged in a nine-hour, on-again, off-again protest and floor speech that leaders could not stop. The Senate passed a budget deal and spending measure to reopen the shuttered federal government early Friday morning, sending the bill to the House. Rand Paul prevented the deal from advancing Thursday.

The bill extends government funding through March 23 to keep agencies open while separately raising military and domestic spending by nearly $300 billion over two years financed through borrowed money.

Two Democratic congressman introduced legislation in their respective chambers to block federal funding for a military parade proposed by Donald Trump meant to emulate the one attended in Paris on Bastille Day, pictured above.
