WASHINGTON, April 28 (Reuters) - The U.S. Congress passed and sent to President Donald Trump legislation to pay for federal government operations through May 5 and avoid agency shutdowns that otherwise would have begun on Saturday.
The Senate approved the one-week extension of funding that the House of Representatives approved earlier on Friday. The legislation gives Congress another week to craft a deal on how approximately $1 trillion will be spent through Sept. 30, the end of the current fiscal year.
