President of the United States Joe Biden has signed a temporary budget bill, allowing for the postponement of a government shutdown, according to the White House press service.

"The President signed into law: H.R. 2872, the “Further Additional Continuing Appropriations and Other Extensions Act, 2024,” which provides fiscal year 2024 appropriations to Federal agencies for continuing projects and activities funded in four of the 12 annual appropriations bills through March 1, 2024," the statement said.

At the same time, it is noted that funding for the remaining eight appropriation bills is provided until March 8, 2024.


Several months ago, U.S. President Joe Biden asked Congress to allocate over $100 billion for national security needs. Approximately $60 billion of these funds were intended for new assistance to Ukraine. However, the package did not gain Congressional support.

Republicans opposed the measure, demanding that the White House incorporate stricter border protection measures into its proposal to address migrant issues.

Recently, media reported that the President agreed to strengthen immigration policies as demanded by Republicans.

Subsequently, the U.S. Senate passed a spending reduction bill to prevent a "shutdown." The vote took place just over 24 hours before the funding for several government agencies was set to expire.
