Featured Item

Last week, the House began passing bills to reopen small segments of the federal government closed by the government shutdown.

One such bill was H. J. Res. 85, the Federal Emergency Management Agency Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014.

It would reopen FEMA and spend funds on “protection, preparedness, response, and recovery,” spending about $106 per U.S. family for that purpose.
