1. U.S. government shutdown averted: Lawmakers reached an agreement on a key spending bill late Sunday, avoiding the possibility of a government shutdown.
If approved by the House and Senate the bill would fund the government through the end of September, senior aides from both parties told CNN.
Votes in both chambers are expected by the end of the week.
2. 100 days of Trump: President Trump passed the symbolic first 100 days mark on Saturday.
His first major economic report was a disappointment, however. On Friday, data showed that U.S. GDP grew by its slowest pace in three years during the first quarter.
The stock market offers a more optimistic picture. The S&P 500 has rallied 11.6% between Trump’s election victory and Friday. That’s the second-best opening performance for a president since an 18% surge under President Kennedy in 1961.
Trump hasn’t scored any major legislative victories, but he does have one big win: The confirmation of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
