Senate Passes Two-Week Funding Measure

Senators have passed a continuing resolution (H. J. RES. 44) to keep the government funded through March 18 by a vote of 91-9. The bill now goes to the President for his signature.

According to the AP, this legislation contains “$4 billion in cuts” that are “not particularly controversial.”

About $2.7 billion was ticketed for earmarked projects, and the balance for education and other programs that Obama had proposed terminating or reducing next year.

Update: President Obama has signed this legislation into law.
