House okays Bush-backed anti-terror measure
From CNN's Andrea Koppel

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The House of Representatives approved legislation Wednesday which gives the administration authority to interrogate and prosecute terrorist detainees, a centerpiece of President Bush's anti-terrorism legislative agenda. The vote was 253-168, split largely on party lines.

The Senate version of the bill is expected to pass Thursday after senators agreed earlier today to limit debate on the measure.

Republican leaders plan to send the president a final version after working out differences in the two bills before Congress adjourns at the end of the week.
