The bill, which was initially approved by the House, passed the Senate by 88 votes to 9 and is expected to be signed by President Biden. Once approved by the president, the administration will be given 45 days to negotiate a fixed, bipartisan budget.

The proposal passed about three hours before the deadline, thus preventing a shutdown of the US government, which would have led to the cancellation of essential services, delayed payment of salaries to American employees and soldiers, damage to aid programs for citizens, closure of public sites, and was even expected to lead to a change in the US credit rating, which would have dramatically hurt the US economy.
