I have a fair understanding of the appropriations process but what I have trouble with is finding information about what kind of consensus is needed for a CR to pass Congress. Is it by simple majority, 2/3, or 3/5 in both House and Senate?

I have a random link here:,_2013

In the link under "Procedural History" it shows the numbers of votes for passage in both House and Senate. But again, what is the majority needed to pass? Because if there were no majority or agreement reached then shutdown would be next until there can be an agreement.
