(AP) A comparison of rival House and Senate bills to fund the government:


House bill:


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.)


Senate bill:


Funds federal agencies through Nov. 15 at the same level as the House bill.


Makes no changes in 2010 health care law.
