WASHINGTON (AP) — A comparison of rival House and Senate bills to fund the government:
—Funds federal agencies through Dec. 15 at current spending levels. The rate equates to annual agency spending of $986 billion, and includes the impact of this year's sequester, or automatic spending cuts.
—Delays for a year the requirement that individuals and businesses with fewer than 50 full-time employees buy insurance under President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law.
(Dropped from the bill were earlier provisions repealing a 2.3 percent tax on medical devices like pacemakers and scanning machines, and letting some employers with religious or moral objections decline to provide contraception coverage.)
—Funds federal agencies through Nov. 15 at the same level as the House bill.
—Makes no changes in 2010 health care law.
