The House and Senate have now both passed the compromise (with Bush) war funding bill


Roll call vote in the House.
Roll call vote in the Senate.

If you are planning to organize an action in reponse to the veto -- here is a heads-up on timing:

House Defense Appropriations Subcommittee Chairman John P. Murtha, D-Pa., said the bill would be sent to Bush on May 1 — four years to the day when Bush declared the end to major combat aboard an aircraft carrier in front of a large "Mission Accomplished" banner.

Murtha said that date was coincidental — lawmakers could not send the bill on April 30 because some House members will be in California to attend the funeral of Rep. Juanita Millender McDonald, D-Calif — but added that the timing was "ironic."
