Kyiv: The US House of Representatives approved the draft law on financing the Ministry of Finance, the tax administration and a number of other institutions for 2019. This is reported by the local media.
It is known that the project was initiated by the Democrats as part of their strategy to overcome the budget crisis associated with the temporary suspension of funding for the work of state institutions.
It is noted that 240 members of the US House of Representatives voted for the adoption of this bill, and 188 representatives voted against it.
After the adoption of this bill, which will still be sent to the Senate, the work of the Ministry of Finance, Tax Administration, Federal Communications Commission, Small Business Administration, Federal Court, and other institutions will be restored.
We recall that US President Donald Trump announced the termination of financial support for three Latin American countries.
