WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate is sending President Trump legislation to temporarily fund the government.

The vote Wednesday averts the possibility of a government shutdown when the new fiscal year starts at midnight.

Trump is expected to sign the bill before the deadline. The bill only funds the government through Dec. 11, setting the stage for a lame-duck session of Congress later this year.

The funding measure also extends many programs whose funding or authorizations lapse on Sept. 30, including the federal flood insurance program and highway and transit programs.
