UPDATE: 

The Senate today approved funding for meat inspectors rather than have them be furloughed as part of the budget sequestration. The amendment was agreed to by voice vote as part of Senate action on its version of the FY 2013 continuing resolution. The CR is expected to receive quick approval from the House. The amendment, proposed by Agriculture Appropriations Chairman Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), and the panel's ranking member, Roy Blunt of Missiouri, shifts money from elsewhere in USDA's budget to the Food Safety and Inspection Service.
