BREAKING: 1 Republican lawmaker objects, halting $19B bipartisan disaster relief bill. https://nbcnews.to/2HQdEBQ
Rep. Roy: “Speaker Pelosi knew full well that a disaster bill may be coming from the Senate and yet chose to recess the House and then brought this forward for consent. I stayed in D.C. to object because this kind of swampy practice is what Texans elected me to stand against.”
WATCH: Republican Rep. Roy objects to passing disaster relief bill by unanimous consent, arguing it spends $19B without members of Congress being present to vote, and that the bill should include money for border security.
Senate passed the bill 85-8. http://nbcnews.to/2HQdEBQ
