Senate Clears Debt Extension Bill

February 1, 2013—The Senate Jan. 31 voted, 64-34, to suspend the federal debt ceiling until mid-May. The bill (H.R. 325) now goes to President Obama, who is expected to sign it.

The bill also would withhold the salaries of lawmakers if their respective chambers fail to pass an FY 2014 budget resolution by April 15. The House passed the legislation Jan. 23 [see Washington Highlights, Jan. 25].
