Libya funding continues

Monday - 7/11/2011, 9:50pm EDT

The house has rejected a move to block money for the U.S. military operation in Libya. The vote was 229-199 on Thursday. Both Republicans and Democrats had complained that the conflict was illegal because President Barack Obama had never sought congressional approval for the operation. But legislators kicked out an amendment that would have barred the use of taxpayer dollars to continue U.S. participation in the NATO-led mission.
