The House had voted in favor of a budget plan that gave state department directors a lump sum to spend as they see fit.

But the Senate took a more traditional approach to the budget, laying out a detailed spending plan line by line.

The House gave in and is no longer pushing the lump sum plan...House budget chairman Carl Bearden.
