Pence says deal has been reached to fund government past month's end

WASHINGTON, Sept 4 (Reuters) - U.S. Vice President Mike Pence said on Friday the Trump administration has reached a deal with lawmakers on Capitol Hill to ensure the government is funded past the month’s end, taking the threat of a government shutdown off the table.

“The agreement reached this week by the Treasury secretary and our negotiation team to have a continuing resolution to continue to fund the government when the fiscal year runs out at the end of this month means that now we can focus just on another (coronavirus) relief bill,” Pence told CNBC.
