House approves $1.1 trillion spending bill

WASHINGTON - The House of Representatives on Wednesday approved a $1.1 trillion spending bill that eliminates the threat of a government shutdown through September 30 and offers lawmakers a chance to end four years of chaotic, crisis-driven budgeting.

The vote, which reflected strong bipartisan support in the Republican-controlled chamber, sends the measure to the U.S. Senate for consideration and passage by a midnight Saturday deadline.
