U.S. Senate Approves $60 Billion War-funding Bill

U.S. Senate Approves $60 Billion War-funding Bill --War Bill Approved as Afghan Conflict Tops Iraq in Cost, Troops 28 May 2010 The U.S. Senate approved a $60 billion war-funding bill last night as the conflict in Afghanistan has exceeded the Iraq war in annual cost and number of troops. Senators voted 67-28 for the measure, which goes to the House for consideration next month. Opposing the legislation were 26 Republicans and two Democrats. The vote came after lawmakers rejected a proposal to require President Barack Obama to submit a non-binding report outlining when he plans to end U.S. involvement in the almost nine-year-old Afghan conflict.
