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, Senior Fellow, Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments

The big national defense authorization bill is moving through Congress. It passed the House yesterday, and the Senate is expected to take it up next week. In purely military spending terms, the bill is a mixed bag. Some programs and platforms get plus-ups, others get cuts. 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.
