WASHINGTON, DC — A $1.1 trillion compromise spending bill that funds the government through September won approval Wednesday from the Republican-led U.S. House and now goes to the Senate for consideration.

The appropriations measure, approved 359-to-67, would roll back some past spending cuts, raise federal worker pay and touch the everyday life of all Americans.

Compromise on the fiscal year 2014 spending bill is a break from years of congressional funding fights that included a government shutdown last October.
