(AP) The Senate has approved a bill to let military chaplains work despite the partial government shutdown.


The Senate backed a version of the measure late Thursday. The version expressed the sense of Congress that chaplains should continue offering their services to members of the military and their families, and it had already passed the House.


Slight changes to the House measure were made by Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin of Michigan. Levin added a provision expressing Congress' hope that the defense secretary could figure out how to pay contractor clergy.


Due to the changes, the bill must go back to the House.


Lawmakers were concerned that the shutdown could disrupt religious services.
