Senate Approves Spending Bill

The U.S. Senate has approved a massive catch-all spending bill.   With last night's approval,  President Trump is expected to sign the measure that has also already cleared the House.  The $1,300,000,000,000 measure is intended to fund the federal government through September.  The government runs out of money at week's end but congressional leaders are confident that a shutdown is unlikely.  

The bill includes an additional $80,000,000,000 in defense spending.
