Biden signs stopgap bill into law

United States President Joe Biden signed the stopgap bill, previously approved by the House of Representatives and the Senate to keep the government open, into law.

The law, titled H.R. 5860, according to the White House's press release, "provides fiscal year appropriations to Federal agencies through November 17, 2023, for continuing projects of the Federal Government and extends several expiring authorities."

Biden previously hailed the adoption of the bill, saying that a different outcome would have caused "an unnecessary crisis that would have inflicted needless pain on millions of hardworking Americans."
