(Worthy News) - House Democrats on Monday stepped up the pressure on Republicans to vote for legislation that at least temporarily funds partially closed government agencies, even if it excludes President Trump’s demand for wall funding.
House Appropriations Committee Chairman Nita Lowey, D-N.Y., introduced two bills that would temporarily fund nine departments and dozens of government agencies for which funding has lapsed since Dec. 22.
One of the measures, which will get a vote on Tuesday, would keep those government operations funded until Feb. 1. A second version, which the House will vote on Friday, would maintain funding through Feb. 28. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
