Omnibus Spending Bill Goes to President

Omnibus Spending Bill Goes to President

By a vote of 72-26, the U-S Senate Thursday easily passed a $1.1 trillion bill that funds the federal government through September. It now goes to the White House for President Obama's signature before a midnight Saturday deadline. Oklahoma U.S. Senator Tom Coburn did not vote on the bill. His spokesman told KTOK that it was because of a family commitment. Oklahoma U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe voted against it. "Today I voted no on the omnibus appropriations bill because it continues the disproportionate cuts that are decimating our national security," he said.
