US Senate ready to send government-wide $1.1T spending bill to Obama
WASHINGTON - The Senate is ready to give final approval to a $1.1 trillion package financing federal agencies this year.
The measure is a bipartisan compromise that all but eliminates the spectre of an election-year government shutdown. After several years of intense standoffs over the budget, many lawmakers want to leave such fights behind them â€” at least for now.
Senate passage was expected as early as Thursday.
On Wednesday, the Republican-run House passed the legislation in a 359-67 vote that underscored how both parties could claim wins in the measure. Of those voting no, 64 were Republicans â€” including many of the chamber's most conservative members.
The legislation is a line-by-line follow-up to the budget compromise Congress approved in December that set overall spending limits for the next two years.
