Boehner's House Bill

I guess this is just how things get done in Washington. When I went to the Library of Congress website to see the vote rolls for the Boehner Bill, I came across this bill, which was sponsered by Democrat Senator Patrick Leahy. Strange. This is it, this is the Boehner Bill, couldn't even get its own bill number or anything.

61. S.627 : Faster FOIA Act of 2011
Sponsor: Sen Leahy, Patrick J. [VT] (introduced 3/17/2011) Cosponsors (3)
Committees: Senate Judiciary; House Oversight and Government Reform
Latest Major Action: 7/29/2011 Passed/agreed to in House. Status: On passage Passed by recorded vote: 218 - 210 (Roll no. 677).
Latest Action: 7/29/2011 Motion by Senator Reid to refer to Senate Committee on the Budget the House message to accompany the bill (S. 627) to report back forthwith with amendment SA 591 made in Senate.
Note: The bill is the House vehicle to raise the debt ceiling, make budget deficit reductions, and require a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution.
