New York (CNNMoney) - The House on Wednesday passed the "No Budget, No Pay Act," a Republican bill that would effectively defuse the debt ceiling threat for several months.

The bill would let the Treasury Department borrow new money until mid-May. In exchange, the legislation would require lawmakers in both chambers of Congress to pass a budget resolution or have their pay withheld until they do.

First on CNN: Inaugural audio boss on Beyoncé: 'It's something that Beyoncé should disclose'

Baltimore (CNN) - The owner of the company that ran the audio board used during Monday's inauguration ceremony tells CNN it's up to Beyoncé to disclose whether she was live or lip-syncing the National Anthem.

Washington (CNN) – At times angry and choked with emotion, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday took on Republican critics of her department's handling of the September terrorist attack in Libya that killed the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, but repeatedly distanced herself from a direct role in specific situations.

"As I have said many times since September 11, I take responsibility," Clinton told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee at the first of two long-anticipated congressional hearings Wednesday on the attack that became a major issue in the November presidential election.

The fundraiser, in Little Rock, the state capital, will be headlined by Clinton, who served 12 years as Arkansas governor before being elected president in 1992.

Poll: Booker still preferred over Lautenberg in NJ

(CNN) - Sen. Frank Lautenberg didn't get the best birthday gift on Wednesday, as new poll numbers indicate that even though a majority of New Jersey voters approve of the job he's doing in Congress, they don't think he deserves re-election next year.

Meanwhile, fellow Democrat and Newark Mayor Cory Booker continues to lead the now 89-year-old senator in a hypothetical 2014 Senate Democratic primary match-up.
