Today in Washington, the Senate narrowly passed a bill to keep the government funded through mid-December and restore funding to the Affordable Care Act that had been stripped out by the House earlier this week. Now, the House will either take up this bill or a competing one over the weekend. As the threat of a government shutdown looms next week, some lawmakers are still attempting to attach riders to the bills including deep cuts to government spending, the weakening of environmental protections and a one-year delay to the health care reform.
