(TheBlaze) The U.S. Senate voted 64-36 Wednesday to pass the two-year Ryan-Murray budget agreement.

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), chairman of the House Budget Committee, and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.), chairwoman of the Senate Budget Committee, say their plan will reduce the nation’s deficit by $23 billion and scale back the March 1 automatic spending cuts known as sequester.

“This vote shows both parties — in both chambers — can find common ground. We can work together,” Ryan saidshortly after the vote.

The deal, titled “The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013,” will replace sequester cuts with savings from future-year cuts, according to the deal’s authors. It also sets the budget cap for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 at $1.012 trillion and $1.014 trillion, respectively. Prior to the bill’s passage, the budget cap for fiscal years 2014 and 2015 was $967 billion and $995 billion, respectively.

The bill will require federal civilian and military employees to contribute more to their pensions, it will increase premiums on companies whose pension plans are insured by taxpayers and it will levy new airline fees on travelers.

These are the 36 senators who voted against the bill:

  1. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.)
  2. Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.)
  3. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.)
  4. Roy Blunt (R-Mo.)
