WASHINGTON: ‘ WHITE HOUSE HOLDS TALKS WITH SENATE OVER EBOLA FUNDING ‘
#AceBreakingNews – WASHINGTON – October 20 – The White House has held preliminary discussions with the Senate about a new funding request to fight Ebola, according to a pair of congressional sources.
Any request would come on top of hundreds of millions of dollars already allocated for the fight against the deadly virus, and would trigger a battle with congressional Republicans over the Obama administration’s handling of the crisis.
Senate Appropriations Committee Chairwoman Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) announced Monday her full panel would meet to discuss the Ebola crisis on Nov. 6, two days after the midterm elections.
