Trump signs bill to end 2nd government shutdown in weeks --Stopgap budget measure boosts spending, sets up new fiscal showdown by March 23 --It was the second shutdown this year | 09 Feb 2018 | The U.S. Congress ended a brief government shutdown on Friday by reaching a wide-ranging deal that is expected to push annual budget deficits to around $1 trillion. The bill passed by a wide margin in the Senate and survived a rebellion of 67 conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives thanks to the support of some Democrats. President Donald Trump signed the measure into law on Friday morning, ending a government shutdown that began just after midnight, when Congress was still debating the budget deal.
