Congress Ends Government Shutdown

Congress Ends Government Shutdown

Congress approved and the president signed measures that end a partial government shutdown and avoid a U.S. default on obligations — but only temporarily. The bill’s passage sets up another collision between the administration and Republicans over spending and borrowing early next year. Much of the government opens for business today.  South Dakota Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune voted in favor of the bill.  Representative Kristi Noem voted against it.
