Senate approves spending bill

From Times Wire Reports

The Senate passed a $464-billion spending bill that closes out last year’s unfinished budget business.

The bill, passed 81 to 15, sticks to President Bush’s overall budget caps but finds numerous ways around them to add to programs favored by lawmakers, such as education, healthcare, food inspection and mine safety.

The bill pulls together nine unfinished spending bills.
