Bush threatens to veto additional security spending

November 7, 2001 Congressional appropriators left a White House meeting with President Bush Tuesday night, no closer to an agreement over spending to fight terrorism, after Bush threatened to veto any bill exceeding the $686 billion cap on the 13 regular bills and the $40 billion supplemental already passed. Capitol Hill's four top...

Homeland security chief takes heat from Senators

October 31, 2001 Senate Democrats and Republicans questioned the administration's handling of recent terrorist threats at meetings Tuesday with Office of Homeland Security Director Tom Ridge.
