U.S. Senate starts vote on whether to take up House-passed funding bill

WASHINGTON, Dec 21 - The U.S. Senate began a procedural vote on Friday on whether to take up a government funding bill passed by the House of Representatives, which included more than $5 billion for a wall along the southern border and was supported by President Donald Trump.
