Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) addresses a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2020.

WASHINGTON - By a sweeping bipartisan vote Wednesday, the Senate sent President Donald Trump a bill to fund the government through Dec. 11, averting the possibility of a government shutdown when the new fiscal year starts Thursday.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows told reporters traveling with Trump that the president intends to sign the bill as soon as he returns to the White House early Thursday.

There was no immediate impact after the bill wasn't signed into law by the midnight Wednesday deadline.
