The U.S. Senate on Thursday approved a $91.3 billion measure that President Barack Obama sought to fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, meeting some of his priorities, but leaving out funding to close the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. The Senate voted 86-3 and now must work out differences with the House of Representatives, which approved a $96.7 billion version of the bill. A single measure is expected to be hammered out and ultimately pass Congress in the coming weeks. Once approved it will likely bring the U.S. cost of the two wars to over $900 billion. The Senate bill includes $22 billion for military hardware like F-22 fighter jets, $4.2 billion for armored vehicles to protect soldiers from explosive devices and $1.5 billion to address a global disease pandemic after the swine flu scare. U.S. Secretary Defence, Robert Gates had stressed on the Congress last month approving the Bill by May 25.
