Spending legisaltion

US President Joe Biden has narrowly avoided a government shutdown.

The 78 year-old signed new legislation on spending, just hours before the deadline.

Republicans blocked a bill that would fund the American government through to early December.

But the bill was eventually passed by the House and the Senate.

The US government is now grappling with another bipartisan bill that would provide $1 trillion dollars for infrastructure projects such as roads, railways, and airports.
