SAN FRANCISCO, Nov 16 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden signed a stopgap spending bill on Thursday to avert a government shutdown, a day after it passed the Senate, the White House said.

Biden signed the document on the sidelines of a dinner at the Legion of Honor museum in San Francisco, where leaders are attending the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit.

U.S. House Speaker Mike Johnson had introduced a stopgap funding bill that drew broad bipartisan support, a rarity in modern American politics. Democrats said they were happy that the plan stuck to spending levels that were set in a May deal with Biden and did not include poisonous provisions on abortion and other hot-button social issues.
