Senate Passes First Budget in Four Years

The Senate passed its first budget in four years by a vote of 50 to 49, The Hill reports.

"The close vote was a big victory for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray (D-WA), who had to overcome large differences within their caucus to push the resolution through."

Politico notes the final vote came after consideration of 101 amendments over 13 hours.
