Congress plans to block Obama’s proposal to cut anti-terror funds that would have slashed $90M from NYC

A Senate committee will vote on a new Homeland Security budget bill that would provide $600 million for the nation’s Urban Area Security Initiative and restore NYC’s $90 million cut by the President’s budget plan reports Erin Durkin in the NY Daily News.

$90 million is half of last year’s anti-terrorism budget for New York City

After the Senate committee votes, the bill will be voted on by the full Senate. If it passes, it will go to the House. The House’s version of the bill has not been released.
