Boehner walks to the House floor for procedural votes for legislation to fund the Department of Homeland Security at the Capitol in WashingtonBy David Lawder and Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Senate on Friday approved a one-week stopgap funding bill to avert a partial shutdown at midnight of the U.S. domestic security agency, leaving it up to the House of Representatives to either approve the bill or let the shutdown go ahead. The Senate backed the short-term measure on a voice vote just hours after the House rejected a three-week extension of spending authority for the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Hoping to propel it to passage, House minority leader Nancy Pelosi urged support in a letter to fellow Democrats. In a stunning rebuke to House Speaker John Boehner, Republican conservatives refused to back the three-week funding extension for the agency, which heads domestic counterterrorism efforts, unless the bill also blocked executive orders on immigration issued last year by President Barack Obama.
