House passes one-week funding extension for Homeland Security

Boehner walks to the House floor for procedural votes for legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security at the Capitol in WashingtonWASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. House of Representatives passed a one-week funding extension for the Department of Homeland Security late on Friday, in time to avert a partial shutdown for the agency at midnight. The two-thirds majority vote, which came with support from Democrats a few hours after the House failed to pass a three-week extension, buys time for Congress to sort out a longer-term funding solution for the domestic security agency.
