Boehner: ‘House Has Done Its Job’ to Fund DHS

Posted February 12, 2015 at 3:00pm

Speaker John A. Boehner said Thursday that his chamber need not — and would not — take any further action to fund the Department of Homeland Security, reiterating the House has done its job and calling for Democrats to allow the Senate to consider the House-passed bill.

The Ohio Republican’s resistance to putting forth another proposal just days before the DHS runs out of money further clouds the outcome for how Congress will avoid a shutdown of the critical agency on Friday.
