WASHINGTON (AP) — The federal government is still in business — for now.

President Barack Obama signed a bill Saturday morning to fund the federal government through Tuesday.

Congress passed the measure Friday night. The three-day continuing resolution allows lawmakers to have a weekend at home with their families, but then return to Washington for wrap-up votes in the days before Christmas.

House and Senate negotiators will turn their attention to a spending bill to fund the government through early next year. Republicans would then be able to shape spending after taking over the majority in the House and increasing their numbers in the Senate.
