House Speaker Nancy Pelosi signs the Further Extending Government Funding Act in order to keep the federal government open after the Senate passed a stopgap spending bill that avoids a short-term shutdown and funds the federal government through Feb. 18 after leaders defused a partisan standoff over federal vaccine mandates. In the signing ceremony Friday, Pelosi said in the spirit of "the bipartisanship that I'm hopeful will occur as we go forward for the people, for the next year and with again a tribute to our members... I will sign the legislation." Joined by Minority Leader Steny Hoyer, House Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Rosa DeLauro, and House congressional leaders the Speaker readied the measure that now goes to President Joe Biden to be signed into law.
