House GOP Fails to Advance 3-Week DHS Funding Bill

Posted February 27, 2015 at 4:43pm

House Republicans fell short of votes to advance a three-week bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security Friday evening, 203-224.

Just hours before the agency is set to shut down, GOP leaders must now decide whether to risk a revolt in their ranks and put the Senate-passed, six-month spending bill on the floor that does not include language to block President Barack Obama’s immigration executive orders.
