Biden says he caught a cold from his young grandson


Biden signs a bill to prevent the closure of the government. Debt ceiling loom.

President Joe Biden signed a short-term bill to fund the government until February on Friday afternoon, avoiding the closure. The president’s signature came after Congress passed a bill called a continuation resolution on Thursday night. The bill will extend the current funds approved during the Trump administration until February 18, avoiding a partial severance, including temporary dismissals, closed parks, monuments, and other federal agencies.
