The Senate passed the $838 billion stimulus plan with one vote to spare -- 61-37 -- sending the bill to President Obama's desk for signing, after the two houses conference.

The Senate vote follows a partisan passage in the House, where it gained no Republican support.

Senate Republicans fought and won spending reductions to the House version of the plan, and gained additional tax cuts.
