It appears Congress and the president have averted another partial government shutdown. On Thursday,
both chambers adopted a conference report on a seven-bill spending package to fund the remainder of the government for the rest of fiscal 2019.
President Donald Trump addressed the nation to declare a national emergency aimed at securing additional funding for a wall on the southern border.
Washington also paused midweek to celebrate the life of the late Michigan Democratic Rep.
John D. Dingell, who died last week.
