Snow Slows House Border Security Bill

Defense News reports that “as a winter storm grips the east coast and snarls air travel, House leaders are delaying votes on a border security bill calling for increased aircraft patrols.”  

“With more than a foot of snow expected in some parts of the northeast, House GOP leaders on Monday afternoon issued a revised schedule for the week. It does not mention H.R. 399, a border-security bill approved last week by the chamber’s Committee on Homeland Security.”  

“A schedule released Monday morning, however, listed the measure as hitting the floor Wednesday.”
