The U.S. Senate on Friday unanimously approved a one-week extension of federal funding to avoid a government shutdown this weekend and to provide more time for separate negotiations on COVID-19 relief and an overarching spending bill, APA reports citing Reuters.

With the Senate’s vote the measure now goes to President Donald Trump for signing into law.
