Senate Passes Commerce/Justice/Science Appropriations Bill

That was quick.  The Senate on Thursday, the same day they re-introduced the bill for debate, passed 71-28.  14 Republicans joined 57 Democrats to vote for the bill.  Sen. Bayh and Sen. McCaskill were the only two Democrats to vote against with the rest of the opposition coming from the Republicans.  Military/Veterans, State/Foreign Operations, Financial Services, and the Labor/HHS/Education bills are the last four appropriations bill needed to be voted on by the Senate although that doesn’t count votes for conference appropriations bills but those go much faster than initial floor debates.

Yesterday, the Senate picked up the Military/Veterans Appropriations bill.
