Texas lawmakers propose funding border wall on their own

Friday 10:50 GMT

As Washington, D.C. debates a budget deal that would get President Trump barely 1/20th of the border wall funding he requested, and with significant strings attached, two local Texas lawmakers are proposing dipping into the state’s "rainy day" fund to finance the border barrier on their own.

Budget negotiators on Capitol Hill have come up with a budget compromise to prevent a partial government shutdown that includes approximately $1.3 billion for a barrier on the southern border, less than the $5.7 billion Trump had called for, and well below the approximately $20-25 billion a wall could cost.
