US Congress agrees deal to avert government shutdown
Text size Aa Aa

Congressional negotiators in the US have reached an agreement to avert a potential government shutdown.

If agreed by the full House of Representatives and Senate, the reported one-trillion-dollar
deal will keep the administration running until the end of the fiscal year on September 30.

Military spending would be boosted, as per President Donald Trump’s request, and a host of federal programmes would be paid for.

However, the accord does not include funding for Trump’s proposed wall on the border with Mexico.
