WASHINGTON, D.C. (NEWS10) – The house has passed a $1.14 trillion spending bill to fund the government through next September.

It’s a peaceful end in the house to a yearlong struggle over the budget, taxes, and republican demands of President Obama. The 316-113 vote sends the bill to the Senate.

Senators are expected vote on the budget measure in combination with a year-end tax plan that gives breaks to working families and a wide variety of business interests.

The President has promised to sign the massive measure.
