$915 billion spending bill passes House

The House of Representatives Friday approved by a 296 to 121 vote a $915 billion spending package that will keep the government running through Sept. 30—but a separate agreement aimed at avoiding a Social Security payroll tax increase Jan. 1 remained elusive. The Senate is expected to approve the spending plan as soon as Saturday.
