President Signs Emergency Border Security Bill Into Law (Updated 8/13/10)

The Border Security Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2010 (H.R. 5875) was passed by the House on 7/28/10 and then amended and passed by the Senate on 8/5/10.

On 8/9/10, the bill had to be introduced in the House again with a new bill number (H.R. 6080) because revenue generating measures must originate in the House of Representatives.

H.R. 6080, which is identical to the version of H.R. 5875 which passed in the Senate on 8/5/10, was passed in House on a voice vote on 8/10/10.

On 8/12/10, the Senate passed H.R. 6080 by unanimous consent. President Obama signed the bill into law on 8/13/10.
