    House Session

    The House debated and passed several Department of Homeland Security bills. One requires DHS to conduct an annual homeland security assessment on the terrorist threat to the U.S. Members also debated, and later unanimously passed, a measure to mark the 60th anniversary of the “Little Rock Nine.” The bill expands the boundary of the Little Rock Central High School Historical Site where on September 25, 1957, nine African-American children, escorted by federal troops, integrated the Arkansas high school. Lawmakers also continued work on amendments to a measure that provides funding for eight of the 12 appropriations bills that fund the federal government.

    California National Guard Bonuses

    Defense and National Guard officials testified at a hearing on bonuses incorrectly paid to California National Guard soldiers. In opening remarks, Major General David Baldwin recommended a “streamlined adjudication process” that eliminates debts owed by soldiers who received improper incentives through no fault of their own. Lieutenant General Timothy Kadavy said that based multiple reviews of the Army National Guard, incentives program fraud is not a nationwide problem.
