Robert Autry, President, AFGE Local 4060

Funding for DHS expires at midnight tonight, which means Congress is quickly running out of time to pass another continuing resolution. If they don't do it today, nearly 30,000 employees will be furloughed. Among the hardest hit will be FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Robert Autry, president of the American Federation of Government Employees Local 4060, which represents FEMA headquarters employees here in Washington, joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to further explain how a shutdown would impact the agency.

DHS Secretary Johnson baffled by 'absurd' budget conversation

A vote in the Senate could come as early as Thursday on a bill that would fund the Homeland Security Department beyond this Friday. If passed, the bill would still have to clear the House, before being sent to the President's desk. While Congress was busy making moves Wednesday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson went on the offensive to ensure Congress doesn't shut down his department. 30,000 DHS workers would be sent home and the trickle-down effect on state and local governments and law enforcement organizations would worsen if Congress doesn't pass a bill, Johnson said.

Administration's cyber sharing proposal a 'policy puzzle,' not a panacea

Jared Serbu, DoD Reporter, Federal News Radio

In its latest legislative proposal on cybersecurity, the White House argues for liability protections for companies who agree to share cyber threat information with the government and with each other. But the Department of Homeland Security admits that solving those legal questions won't mean companies will automatically open their doors to the data the government wants. Federal News Radio DoD Reporter Jared Serbu has the details.
