House rejects stopgap security agency funding, partial shutdown looms

Boehner returns to his office after a visit to the House floor for procedural votes for legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security at the Capitol in WashingtonBy David Lawder and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The House of Representatives on Friday failed to approve a stopgap funding bill for the U.S. domestic security agency, increasing the threat of a partial agency shutdown at midnight. With just hours left before spending authority expires for the Department of Homeland Security, a three-week spending bill was rejected in the House by a 224-203 vote, leaving lawmakers with few options ahead of the deadline. Congressional leaders made no immediate comment about their next step in a political battle sparked by Republican efforts to block funding for Democratic President Barack Obama's executive orders on immigration by attaching provisions to the department spending bill. Created after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, the department is a super-agency that encompasses the Coast Guard, the Secret Service, the Transportation Security Administration and immigration, customs and emergency management authorities.

U.S., Cuba say progress made in talks; no date for diplomatic ties

Second Round Of Talks To Re-Establish Diplomatic Ties With Cuba Takes Place At State Dept.By David Adams and Arshad Mohammed WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Cuban and U.S. officials held a second round of talks on Friday toward normalizing ties and both sides said they made good progress, although they did not set a date for renewal of diplomatic relations that Washington severed 54 years ago. Going into the talks, Communist-ruled Cuba pushed to be removed from a U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. The head of Cuba's delegation to the talks, Josefina Vidal, said removal from the terrorism list was not a pre-condition for renewal of diplomatic ties, but she added that it was a "very important issue" and a priority for Cuba. The talks in Washington stemmed from the historic decision announced by the two Cold War era foes last December to work to normalize relations, including opening embassies in each other's countries, and to exchange prisoners.
