Get today's date in SQL Query

I am running a query, and I would like to be able to compare today's date with a field in the database table.  As in

SELECT * FROM table1
WHERE datecolumn <= (SQL query for today's date)

   DATE() returns the date without time
    NOW() returns the current date & time (note we've used the DATE() function in this query to remove the time)

Is this MySQL or SQL Server? You have it in both zones.

select * from table1 where datecolumn <= DATE(NOW());

SELECT * FROM table1
WHERE datecolumn <= getdate()

To compare the date without the time component:

SELECT * FROM table1
WHERE datecolumn <= convert(int,getdate())
