Senate Passes HJ Res 124

Earlier this evening the  Senate took up the FY 2015 Continuing Resolution, HJ Res 124 and passed it with a bipartisan vote of 78 to 22. Eight Republicans joined 14 Democrats in voted in voting against the bill. Once the President signs the bill the government will remain funded through December 11th.

As passed the bill has some relatively vague to provisions supporting select anti-Assad rebels. It also includes an extension of the CFATS to that same December date.

There is still a chance that some of the individual spending bills might be taken up after the election, but most will probably be lumped together in an omnibus spending bill.
