Washington, June 27 (bdnews24.com/Reuters) - The US Senate on Thursday approved $161.8 billion in new funds to continue fighting the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan for the next year, without timetables for withdrawing combat troops.

The House of Representatives passed an identical bill last week.

President George W. Bush is expected to promptly sign the measure into law once he receives it from Congress.
