Senate sends Obama temporary funding bill to avert shutdown

US Republican leadership hold news conference on budget negotiations in WashingtonWASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Senate on Wednesday passed and sent to President Barack Obama emergency legislation to fund the government beyond midnight when existing money expires. By voice vote, the Senate passed a bill approved earlier on Wednesday by the House of Representatives that extends the temporary appropriations through Dec. 22. The measure gives Congress more time to finish a $1.15 trillion bill to pay for federal programs through September 2016. (Reporting by Richard Cowan; Editing by Eric Beech)
