North Country Congresswoman Elise Stefanik is hoping that a clean version of the Department of Homeland Security Funding bill passed by the Senate makes it to the House floor for a vote later this week. On Friday, Congress passed a temporary one week extension to fund the federal department just as funding was set to run out. The extender bill came about after a three week extension bill was defeated in the House. Stefanik voted yes on both bills. She says she campaigned on ending government dysfunction and does not support government shutdowns. At issue is President Obama’s executive actions on immigration. An earlier DHS bill passed by the House sought to do away with some of those actions. That bill also saw Stefanik vote yes.
