Stopgap Spending Bill Heads to Trump

On September 26, 2019, the Senate voted 82-15 to pass a stopgap spending bill (HR 4378) that would fund the federal government through Nov. 21, including funding extensions for community health centers, teaching hospital programs, and more. The measure now goes to President Trump who is expected to sign it before the Oct. 1 deadline to prevent a federal shutdown. (Source: Politico, 9/26)
