War bill up to Obama

WASHINGTON (AP) - A $106 billion measure funding the wars in
Iraq and Afghanistan now awaits President Barack Obama's signature.
The Senate approved the measure by a lopsided, 91-5 vote. The
bill covers $80 billion in war spending, and about $26 billion for
other programs.
Several senators voiced unhappiness that the bill is more than
$20 billion beyond what Obama requested.
