Senate sends $1.1 trillion spending bill to Obama
WASHINGTON -The Senate on Sunday passed a $1.1 trillion spending bill.
The more-than-1,000-page package, one of the last essential chores of Congress this year. Projects included construction of a county farmer's market in Kentucky, renovation of a historic theater in New York and restoration of a mill in Rhode Island. The legislation also contains numerous items not directly related to spending. It provides help for auto dealers facing closure, ends a ban on funding by the District of Columbia government for abortions and allows the district to permit medical marijuana, lets Amtrak passengers carry unloaded handguns in their checked baggage and permits detainees held at Guantanamo Bay to be transferred to the United States to stand trial, but not to be released. Congress must soon raise the debt ceiling, now at $12.1 trillion.
