Obama to Sign War Spending Bill Into Law on Thursday

President Barack Obama will sign the $58.8 billion war spending supplemental into law Thursday evening, the White House announced.

The president will sign the proposal at 6 p.m. in the Oval Office. The measure is set to become law two days after the House agreed to pass a stripped-down version of the bill passed by the Senate. House Democrats were originally pressing to include new funding for teachers, border security, Pell Grants and a summer jobs program.

The final bill passed the House on a 308-114 vote.
