Senate approves sweeping bill on defense, domestic spending

ㅤ"The defense and health appropriations bills, in particular, are a lightning rod for controversial, partisan amendments from both sides.
ㅤBut leadership made a deal earlier this year to avoid attacking so-called ‘poison pill’ proposals, which would threaten bipartisan support, to the funding bills.
ㅤThe Senate, for example, rejected an amendment from Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to cut off federal funding from Planned Parenthood. They also didn’t take up amendments tied to the administration’s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policies or a bipartisan proposal that would have reined in Trump’s ability to revoke security clearances."

Full story at The Hill – 8/23/18. See "planned parenthood, senate, spending bill."
