Ohio representative to oppose government budget deal

WOODBURY - ? The spending battle is continuing in Washington as the head of a House GOP panel says he will oppose the budget deal that stopped a government shutdown last week.

Rep. Jim Jordan, of Ohio, says he believes ?voters are asking us to set our sights higher.?

The House Appropriations Committee says cuts total almost $40 billion and more than $780 million comes from Homeland Security. Officials say the EPA budget is being slashed by more than $1.5 billion and the Food and Safety Inspection will lose about $10 million. In addition, almost $3 billion is expected to be cut in high-speed rail funds.

The House is expected to vote on the deal tomorrow and then the Senate will decide.

Tomorrow, President Obama will present his plan for future spending to Americans in a national address.
