Senate Passes Bill to Avoid Government Shutdown

 
Senate Passes Bill to Avoid Government Shutdown
Posted Friday, September 27th 2013 @ 11am  by KFBK News

An anti-Obamacare provision is out of a bill aimed at averting a government shutdown next week, allowing it to pass through the Senate.

The Senated voted 54-44 on Friday to approve the bill, which was stripped of all health care language.

The short-term spending bill now heads back to the House for another vote before moving on to President Barack Obama. The government runs out of money early Tuesday without a deal to extend funding.

House Republicans appear to be furious with this outcome. House Republican John Boehner (R-Ohio) has said that he will ammend the bill, and plans on sending it back to the Senate by Monday.

The House is scheduled to vote on the bill on Saturday.
