House Passes FY2013 Full-Year CR
The House passed the full-year Continuing Resolution (CR) this afternoon by a vote of 267-151. Many Democrats spoke against the bill because it holds non-defense agencies to their funding levels as reduced by the sequester while defense spending grows.
Nonetheless, 53 Democrats joined 214 Republicans in passing the bill, H.R. 933. Opposing it were 137 Democrats and 14 Republicans.
The bill now goes to the Democratically-controlled Senate. Congress has until March 27 to pass a bill to fund the rest of FY2013 (which ends on September 30).
