Senate agreement: wonders never cease
Maybe the Senate is feeling the heat and scorn from voters.
“News Alert: Senate leaders reach deal to keep government funded
September 26, 2011 6:41:43 PM
Senate leaders announced a bipartisan agreement Monday evening that would keep government agencies funded until Nov. 18, potentially ending a contentious dispute on how to pay for disaster funds. The Senate is expected to approve its version of the temporary spending bill Monday evening.
The House is likely to approve a very brief extension of funding by a voice vote later this week and, when it returns to session next week, hold a vote on the stop-gap bill funding the government till Nov. 18.
This is only a short haul measure, however.
