President Joe Biden on Thursday night signed Congress' stopgap funding bill to avert a shutdown and extend government funding through December 3, according to the White House.

Government funding had been set to expire at midnight, but Democratic congressional leaders, who control both chambers of Congress, had projected confidence that the government would remain open. The bill passed the House and Senate earlier in the day with a bipartisan vote.

Biden, in a Thursday statement, said that "the passage of this bill reminds us that bipartisan work is possible and it gives us time to pass longer-term funding to keep our government running and delivering for the American people."
