Trump administration supports US senate version of funding legislation


White House advisors would recommend that President Donald Trump sign a US Senate version of a bipartisan bill to fund the federal government, the Office of Management and Budget said in a press release on Thursday, APA reports quoting Sputnik.

 

"The [Trump] Administration supports Senate passage of the substitute amendment to H.R. 1892 the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018," the release said. "If the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 were presented to the President in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign it into law."

 

The release said the non-defense spending in the bill is higher than the administration believes is necessary, and added that Congress should enact hundreds of billions of dollars in additional spending cuts proposed by the administration without delay.

 

Both the US Senate and House of Representatives are expected to vote on this legislation on Thursday in order to prevent a federal government shutdown at midnight when funding runs out.
