Congress passes funding until March

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/nation/article/congress_passes_funding_until_march_20101222

Congress passed a procedural resolution that sustains government funding until March. The "continuing resolution" passed Tuesday includes the $2.75 billion in annual defense assistance for Israel. It passed 79-16 in the Senate and 193-165 in the U.S. House of Representatives. It maintains government funding at 2010 levels. Failure to pass it would have meant that the government would run out of money by midnight.
