HOW THEY VOTED
This is bad news but expected. We now have to concentrate on the Senate and continue to call Senators reminding them a yes vote on the wolf delisting budget bill will strip wolves of their ESA protections and gut the ESA. Is this the legacy the Democrats what to follow them around forever? The party that destroyed the ESA and allowed wolves to be “managed/killed” by brutal state plans? Please continue to call Democrat Senators until the vote comes to the floor later on today.
Budget Deal Passes House Vote
The House, in a bipartisan vote, has passed a yearlong government funding measure cutting $38 billion from the budget and closing out sometimes quarrelsome negotiations between the Obama administration and Republicans dominating the House.
The measure passed Thursday by a 260-167 vote in which dozens of Democrats made up for defections from tea party-backed GOP conservatives. The Senate was poised to vote later in the day and the president has said he’ll sign it into law.
This is a developing story… More information to come…
