House Approves $39B DHS FY 2014 Budget

Capitol_BuildingThe House voted Thursday to approve a $39 billion fiscal year 2014 budget for the Department of Homeland Security and granted DHS $1 billion more than it received for the previous fiscal year, Reuters reports.

David Lawder writes the bill was passed two days after the House approved a $73 billion spending bill for the Department of Veterans Affairs and military construction projects.

Lawder reports the Senate will not likely move the homeland security bill through the chamber and President Barack Obama would likely veto that legislation.

House Republicans proposed a $967 billion spending limit for fiscal 2014 and Senate Democrats on the Appropriations Committee are preparing spending bills that total $1.058 trillion, according to Reuters.
