The bill would lift the shutdown, but not provide funding assistance to Ukraine. Biden now has a few hours to sign.
The Senate approved a temporary funding project for the US government, which was voted down by the lower house of Congress a few hours before, reports The Washington Post.
The document provides for a 45-day extension of government funding to avoid a shutdown.
Now the project will be sent for signature to US President Joe Biden, who formally has a little more than 3 hours left to avoid closure.
As reported, the short-term funding bill includes disaster relief and an extension of the federal flood insurance program, but not aid to Ukraine. The White House said a bill to support Ukraine would be submitted to Congress separately.
A shutdown is a state when part of the American government stops working due to the fact that a new budget has not been adopted in the United States. Employees of a large portion of government agencies are currently working for free or are on indefinite leave.
