Stopgap Spending Bill: U.S. House of Representatives
The House rejected a stopgap spending bill for the Homeland Security Department with just hours to go before a midnight deadline to fund the agency or see it begin to partially shut down. Earlier in the day Congressman Mike Rogers spoke to TV24 and said Republican leadership is now deciding what it needs to do. He commented on how the overall bill could affect the local Department of Homeland Security and the Center for Domestic Preparedness at Anniston. It is not clear what the next step for legislators will be.
