WASHINGTON, DC - June 11: House Appropriations Homeland Security Subcommittee Chairman David E. Price, D-N.C., talks to reporters after the markup of a fiscal 2009 Homeland Security spending bill that would ignore proposed cuts to popular law enforcement grant program. The draft bill would provide $39.9 billion to the department, $2.2 billion beyond President Bush's request and about 6 percent more than in fiscal 2008. The Homeland Security Subcommittee approved the measure by voice vote. Republican members did not offer amendments, but they said they expected the full Appropriations Committee to address their concerns at its June 18 markup. (photo by Scott J.
