Need to Know News: House passes temporary spending plan with more cuts; Dugard sues fed over her kidnapping

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For September 23, 2011 – House passes temporary spending plan, Jaycee Dugard sues fed over her kidnapping, more facets' to Abbas' U.N. move...

• House passes temporary spending plan with more cuts: "The Republican-controlled House passed a short-term spending plan early Friday that would keep the government funded for seven weeks after the end of the fiscal year on September 30. Passage of the package sets up a showdown with the Democratic-led Senate just as Congress is set to begin a week-long recess."

• Dugard sues fed over her kidnapping: "Jaycee Dugard filed a complaint against the federal government Thursday, seeking compensation for what she called its failures to track the man who held her captive for 18 years. The lawsuit was filed Thursday morning in the U.S. District Court for Northern California. This comes after the U.S. government "summarily rejected" two requests from Dugard "for private mediation in the case," according to a press release from Nancy Seltzer and Associates, a Los Angeles-based public relations firm that represents the long-time kidnap victim."

• More facets to Abbas' U.N. move, analysts say: "Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' ambitious push to gain full U.N. membership may seem unrealistic, but analysts say he is making hard-nosed calculations rooted in domestic politics."

• Perry is focus of attention, attacks at Florida debate: "The perils of being the Republican frontrunner came into sharp focus for Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday at a debate in Florida, with his rivals aggressively seeking to poke holes in his record and dislodge him from the top of the polls. Perry repeatedly found himself on his heels as his foes pressed him on issues including Social Security, immigration, border security and his 2007 executive order mandating that middle-school girls be vaccinated against the sexually transmitted HPV virus that can cause cervical cancer."

Facebook revamps site with 'Timeline' and real-time apps: "Facebook wants to hear your life story. Not satisfied with just being a repository for recent vacation photos, the company is revamping the profile pages on its website to better highlight the milestones in a person's life, executives announced at its annual conference for software developers on Thursday."

    Pierce, love your show, your intelligence and your ethics. Please ask America why we do not have a RAILROAD FOR JOBS. Europe and the rest of the industrialized world does. We would have jobs from designers to builder to contractors. WHY WHY???
