Senators Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Homeland Security funding bill co-sponsors in the Senate, spoke about the measure from the Senate floor shortly before a re-vote on the legislation, which was blocked the previous day. Senator Mikulski explained the difference between the House-passed and Senate versions of the bill, and cited the killing of a Jordanian pilot by members of ISIS* as one reason why backing the Homeland Security Department is important. * The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is a militant group that has called itself the Islamic State.
