The Senate on Thursday passed the $1.7 trillion Omnibus spending bill in a 68-29 vote.

“The package includes $858 billion in defense spending, a nearly 10 percent increase over the previous fiscal year, and $787 billion in nondefense spending, close to an 8 percent increase. It also would provide roughly $85 billion in supplemental funding for Ukraine and disaster relief.” Roll Call reported.

The bill will now head to the House of Representatives ahead of the Friday night deadline to avert a partial government shutdown.
