The U.S. Senate followed the House’s lead, passing Wednesday morning the continuing resolution to keep the government funded through March 18.
The measure was passed by a 91-9 margin in the Senate. The House passed the measure Tuesday, on a 335-91 vote.
The CR includes around $4 billion in spending cuts, including $650 million from highways and $468 million from U.S. Department of Education programs.
