The U.S. Congress has passed a massive year-end bill that includes a $900 billion coronavirus aid package and $1.4 trillion in annual government funding.
Both the House of Representatives and the Senate passed the measure with overwhelming support late Monday, with lawmakers having only a few hours to look over the more than 5,000-page bill.
They were facing a midnight deadline to keep the U.S. government funded.
President Donald Trump is expected to sign the bill in the coming days.
