Tom Shoop, Editor in Chief, Government Executive

A budget battle is still waging in Congress. This time, it's President Barack Obama's immigration order that could led to a government shutdown. But an omnibus spending bill is now gaining traction in the House. It funds most agencies for a full year but gives the Homeland Security Department funding for a few months. That gives Congress time to revisit the President's immigration policy when Republicans take over the Senate next year. Tom Shoop, editor-in-chief of Government Executive magazine, tells In Depth with Francis Rose why this situation isn't anything new.

Todd Harrison is a senior fellow at the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments. He's been studying the bill, and joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to analyze the bill's winners and losers.
