Washington, December 2nd (Reuters) - The US Chamber approved Thursday a bill of financing Federal Government Until 18 February, following an agreement in this direction between Democrats and Republicans, with the aim of avoiding a partial closure of the administrations ("Shutdown").

It is now up to the Senate to decide on the text Friday, a few hours of expiry, at midnight, current federal funding.

The Chamber, controlled by the Democrats, voted in 221 votes against 212 in favor of the financing bill, supported by a Republican elected representative only.

We all vote down here

  We all vote down here Good morning, early birds. George Christensen has joined a group of backbenchers threatening to hold their votes hostage unless state vaccine mandates are overturned, and Penny Wong accuses Peter Dutton of stoking tensions with China. It's the news you need to know, with Emma Elsworthy.Five senators crossed the floor yesterday voting for One Nation leader Pauline Hanson’s anti-vaccine mandate bill, but it was defeated 44-5 anyway (they were Gerard Rennick, Alex Antic, Matt Canavan, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells, and Sam McMahon, as Guardian Australia lists).

It is unclear whether the Senate will vote the text before the expiry of the current funds while a handful of Republican senators threaten to block the passage of the bill if it does not include an amendment to Remove the funds for the Democratic President Joe Biden to vaccination of employees against CVIV-19.

In the event of a failure to the Senate vote before Friday midnight, hundreds of thousands of federal employees could lose their work, which would cause the suspension or reduction of federal programs.

Conversely, the adoption of the measure would continue to finance the operations of the federal government during the health crisis at the very moment when concerns are revived by the appearance of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus, which caused an increase in contaminations.

A "Shutdown" would embarrass the two parties, but particularly the Joe Biden Democratic Peers who do not control the two Houses of the Congress. (Reporting Doina Chiacu and David Morgan, French version Jean Terzian)
