The Senate passed a temporary spending bill to fund federal agencies, averting a possible government shutdown at midnight Thursday.
The move now sends the measure to President Trump for his signature.
Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., who chairs the Senate Appropriations Committee, said he expects the president to sign it. However, he wouldn't guarantee it.
"I'm sure he'll sign that," Shelby said of the president. "Now, it hasn't been done yet, I want to emphasize that."
