Friday: Intelligence authorization

The House wraps up work for the week on Friday with votes on the intelligence authorization after two late nights debating 2015 appropriations.

Debate and votes on the 2015 Commerce-Justice-Science appropriations bill lasted until 1:15 a.m. Friday. Members will return with less than eight hours later for legislative business.

The intelligence authorization would allow funding for the CIA, Defense Intelligence Agency, Office of the Director of National Intelligence and National Security Agency.
