US Senate Approves Temporary Funding, Bill Sent To Obama
Written by  // Wednesday, 02 March 2011 10:52 //

The US Senate on Wednesday voted to extend government funding for two weeks and is sending the legislation to President Obama to be signed into law.

However, the federal government funding issue remains as republicans and democrats prolong the debate until the next round.

The Senate  passed the short term funding bill, which funds government operations for two weeks by a vote of 91-9. Yesterday, the House vote was 335-91. 

The bill prevents the federal government from shutting down on Friday. The compromise bill also includes limitations on discretionary spending.
