The article reports that the U.S. Senate appears close to passing a broad domestic funding bill that includes increased money for several Health and Human Services (HHS) programs, setting the stage for another probable veto from U.S. President George W. Bush. The $152 billion Labor-HHS funding bill, which in addition to HHS also sets the fiscal 2008 budget for the departments of Labor and Education, is one of 12 appropriation bills that have stalled since the beginning of the year. The bill does not affect funding for Medicare and Medicaid directly.
