Washington, D.C. (U.S.), Jan 23 (ANI): United States President Donald Trump signed into law the funding bill that officially ended the three-day government shutdown on Monday. Earlier, the U.S. House of Representatives passed a short-term measure to fund the federal Government through February 8 and end a three-day-long Government shutdown. By a 266-150 vote, the Republican-led House quickly followed the Senate and approved the stopgap bill, which includes a six-year extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) but not protections for ‘Dreamer’ immigrants sought by Democrats. The funding measure will now go to President Trump, who said he will sign it into law, ending the government shutdown. The bill now funds the Government upto February 8, along with the popular Children's Health Insurance Programme (CHIP) for at least six years.
