Senate approves CR; now moves to the House
The Senate approved a $984 billion continuing resolution on Wednesday that will keep the government funded through the end of the current fiscal year.
The House will now vote on the bill that passed by a 73-26 vote in the Senate. The bill includes the same funding level as the bill approved by the House and would keep the $85 billion in sequestration cuts in place. The House is expected to vote the bill into law before adjourning next Thursday.
If approved, it will allow the two sides to begin working on a full budget for the fiscal year.
