Congress allocates $425M for election security in spending bill

Congress has allocated about $425 million in new funding for election security ahead of the 2020 presidential election. The funding is part of a spending package expected to be passed by the end of the week. It also represents a compromise. Democrats in the House had originally hoped for $600 million. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., indicated earlier this year he would support $250 million. Miles Parks, NPR
