The Senate narrowly passed a budget resolution earlier this week, with a last-minute amendment adopting technical and procedural language from the House budget passed earlier in October that may expedite the budget's final passage.

A House GOP source told The Hill earlier this week that the language may allow the House to directly pass the Senate bill without heading to conference committee.
