US House of Representatives adopts new budget bill

The US House of Representatives passed two bills relating to the financing of the federal government: one provides for the allocation of money to the Department of Homeland Security by February 8, and the other to provide funds to the rest of the US departments by September 30, informs citing RIA Novosti.

It is noted that both documents do not provide for the allocation of money for the construction of the wall on the US-Mexican border.

According to the agency, both bills were supported by the majority of congressmen of the House of Representatives, in which at the moment the majority belongs to the Democrats. At the same time, the head of the Republican majority in the Senate, Mitch McConnell, has already said that his party will not support these documents.
