DC delegate blocked from testifying on abortion bill

CAPITOL HILL (WUSA9) -- DC Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton blasted a House Republican subcommittee chair she was denied a chance to speak on a bill to permanently ban the city from spending its own tax money on abortions for low-income women.

Chairman Trent Franks (R-AZ) says Delegate Norton could have testified, but only as the Democrats sole witness on the 'No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act'. "The minority was entirely free to invite Ms Norton as their witness."

Democrats say the bill hits women across the country. And they say allowing Norton to testify is a common courtesy almost always extended to members of the House.

Unemployment benefits bill clears hurdle

WASHINGTON (AP) - Legislation to renew jobless benefits for the long-term unemployed has cleared an initial Senate hurdle, but the bill's fate remains in doubt.

The vote Tuesday was 60-37 to limit debate on the legislation, with a half-dozen Republicans siding with the Democrats.

At the same time, Senate Republicans served notice they would attempt to change the measure so the $6.4 billion cost would not add to deficits - a step that Democrats have so far rejected.

As drafted, the bill would restore between 14 weeks and 47 weeks of benefits averaging $256 weekly to an estimated 1.3 million long-term jobless who were affected when the program expired Dec. 28. Without action by Congress, thousands more each week would feel the impact as their state-funded benefits expire, generally after 26 weeks.
