Legislation to fund US gov't through April clears procedural hurdle in Senate

WASHINGTON, Dec 9 (Reuters) - A bill to fund the U.S. government cleared a procedural hurdle in the U.S. Senate on Friday and appeared poised to pass the chamber, averting a government shutdown.

The vote, 61-38, came after Democrats who sought more generous healthcare benefits for coal miners in the bill, ended their attempts to delay action on the measure. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell)
