WASHINGTON, March 19 — The top Republican and Democrat in the US Congress today said they had reached a deal to keep the government funded through the rest of the fiscal year that began in October, setting off a race to pass it before a weekend shutdown deadline.

The last sticking point was funding for the Department of Homeland Security, as a surge in migrants at the US-Mexico border has become a major issue in the election rematch between Democratic President Joe Biden and his Republican predecessor Donald Trump.

Republican House Speaker Mike Johnson and Democratic Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer revealed the agreement in a pair of Tuesday morning statements.

It was expected to cover about three-quarters of discretionary government spending, due to come in at about US$1.66 trillion for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30. It contains funding for functions including the US military, transportation, housing and food safety.
