WASHINGTON - The Republican-led House is ready today to approve a massive $1.1 trillion bipartisan spending bill for this year.
The legislation provides about $20 billion more for defense and domestic programs this year than was spent in 2013 and provides money for President Barack Obama's health care overhaul. The Democrat-controlled Senate is expected to vote on the bill by the end of the week.
The $1.1 trillion includes about $30 billion less than Congress originally provided for last year, but it is also about $20 billion more than was provided after automatic spending cuts called the sequester took effect for 2013. The total prevents $45 billion in sequester cuts legally required for this year because of the failure of President Obama and Congress to agree to previous budget savings.
