House passes $45B homeland security spending bill today

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House on Thursday passed a $45 billion measure boosting the Homeland Security Department’s budget by about 2 percent above spending levels imposed by an ongoing round of automatic budgets cuts.

The 245-182 vote sent the measure to the Senate, which was likely to unveil a modestly more generous version later this month.
