House expected to pass spending bill
WASHINGTON - The House is expected today to approve a $1.1 trillion spending bill for this year.
It's a bipartisan bill that heads off an additional $20 billion in automatic cuts to the Pentagon's budget and to many domestic programs.
The measure also provides money for the new health care overhaul and the Obama administration's revamping of federal oversight of the nation's financial markets.
The Senate is expected to approve the legislation before the end of the week.
