Senate Approves 1.1 Trillion Spending Bill
The U.S. Senate late Saturday night approved a $1.1 trillion spending bill that funds the government through next September, supposedly averting a partial government shutdown and sending the measure to President Obama's desk. The Senate voted 56-40 for the long-term funding bill, the main item left on Congress' year-end agenda. The measure provides funding for nearly the entire government with the exception of the Department of Homeland Security, which will be funded until February 27.
