Senate to Vote on Three-Week Spending Measure Tomorrow

Senators will vote on final passage of a three-week spending measure (H. J. RES. 48) tomorrow. The House has already completed work on the bill.

The AP reports that this continuing resolution blends “$6 billion in budget cuts with enough money to keep the government running for an additional three weeks.” Funding would run out on April 8.

The legislation includes “$3.5 billion in cuts endorsed by Democrats with $2.6 billion saved by cutting numerous accounts that have in the past been slush funds for lawmakers’ back-home parochial projects.”

It’s expected to pass.

Update (3/17): This bill has been passed.
