Imf Vote NPR's Peter Kenyon reports that the Senate this afternoon overwhelmingly approved President Clinton's request for $18 billion in additional funding for the International Monetary Fund to help it deal with the Asian financial crisis. The funding was attached to a bill providing money for the military and to help with disaster relief in areas hit hard by storms and floods this winter. However, the House objects to linking the measures and it is unclear what will happen with the administration's IMF funding request when it comes up in that chamber.
