President Trump signed a short-term spending bill into law early Thursday, about an hour after current funding levels expired and averting a federal government shutdown.
Hours earlier the Senate voted 84-10 to approve the bill, which extends current funding levels and keeps the federal government open through Dec. 11
In theory, parts of the government were unfunded for about an hour, but the White House did not address the discrepancy in a brief statement following the signing.
