WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved a $91.3 billion measure sought by President Barack Obama to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The measure meets some of Obama’s key priorities but leaves out funding to close the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
It must now be reconciled with a $96.7 billion version that was approved by the House of Representatives. That will likely happen over the next few weeks.
