House Republicans agree to vote on bill to raise debt limit for 3 months

With only one week left, the Senate is scrambling to make a decision about the bill that could determine how much money the United States is limited to borrow. They only have until April 15 to choose a budget. If an agreement between the Democrat and Republican houses isn't made in time, the bill could raise the debt ceiling for three months.

After the showing of the "Herod the Great" exhibition, the museum reportedly states they will return the materials to their original site in the West Bank. One of the materials found by the late Ehund Netzer was a legendary 25-m long tomb in the ancient winter palace Herodium.
