The potential for a state government shutdown ended Wednesday with the Executive Council voting unanimously to approve a $1.4 billion, catchall spending request.

Gov. Chris Sununu said he was “relieved” the Democratic-led council approved the spending warrant the state treasurer requires each month.

The vote is typically a routine item that receives no debate, but earlier this month the council delayed voting on it after saying Sununu didn’t give members enough information about pandemic-related spending.
