Senate passes $1.4 trillion government spending package

Capitol Review

WASHINGTON (WDVM) — The Senate has passed a $1.4 trillion dollar government spending package in what amounted to a last, bipartisan burst of legislating before the end-of-the-year holidays.

The Senate cleared the two-bill package in a set of votes Thursday and sent it to President Donald Trump.

The legislation gives trump a victory on his US Mexico border fence but also gives Democrats long-sought domestic spending increases and a repeal of Obama-era taxes on high-cost health insurance plans.
