Congress is sending President Barack Obama a new federal budget after letting the last fiscal year lapse without one.  The new budget goes through the next two fiscal years until September 30, 2015, and passed by the U.S. Senate today.

It already passed the House of Representatives where only one Hoosier voted against it.  Indiana’s district 1 U.S. Representative Pete Visclosky told Lakeshore’s Jerry Howard why he voted against this budget plan and how he’s preparing for the next one.  Click to watch.

The new budget goes to the President for his signature after passing the Senate with nearly two-thirds support.
