Congress sends spending plan to president

WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Congress has agreed on a government spending plan.

President Obama is expected to sign it by the end of the week.

On Wednesday the Senate approved the budget by a vote of 64-to-36.

The compromise sets a path of government spending unto 2015 and puts aside the threat of a shut-down.

The deal calls for erasing some forced spending cuts and reducing the deficit by at least $20-billion.
