GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AVERTED AS PRES TRUMP AGREES TO SPENDING BILL
Agri-Pulse reports:

Assured of President Donald Trump's support, Congress easily cleared a fiscal 2019 spending agreement Thursday to avert another government shutdown and fund USDA, Interior, FDA and other departments and agencies important to agriculture through Sept. 30.

The Senate passed the bill, 83-16, shortly after Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced that Trump would sign the bill and also issue a national emergency declaration dealing with the border. The House later approved the bill Thursday evening, 300-128.

The massive, 1,169-page spending bill, which combines seven individual FY19 spending bills, most of which were negotiated by House and Senate appropriators but never enacted, including the Agriculture measure that funds USDA and FDA, and the Interior-Environment measure that funds the Interior Department, EPA and the Forest Service.
