Thursday: House to vote on Homeland Security amendments

Aside from those, the House will have to vote on several others, including amendments that would:

Reduce DHS funding by 10 percent, except for border operations (Rokita, R-Ind.);

Deny the use of DHS funds for collective bargaining for Transportation Security Administration employees (Rokita, R-Ind.);

Prevent DHS from having to comply with the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage law (Gosar, R-Ariz.);

Prevent DHS from following an Executive Order that mandates project labor agreements on construction projects valued above $25 million (Scalise, R-La.), and;

Block the purchase of advanced imaging machines (Amash, R-Mich.).

More details on the amendments to be considered on Thursday can be found here.

After the DHS bill is considered, the House may start work on H.R. 2055, the Military Construction, Veterans Affairs and Related Agencies Appropriations Act. This is the second appropriations bill to be taken up under the 112th Congress, and like the DHS bill, it will be taken up under an open rule that allows members to make unlimited germane amendments.
