House votes today on NPR

[UPDATE] The House voted 228 - 192, passing HR 1076.

Yesterday I posted about the totally necessary emergency meeting called to discuss a bill, HR 1076, that would pull all of NPR's federal funding. This bill was introduced Tuesday. Today, the House is going to vote on it. You can watch live coverage via C-SPAN. Starting at 11 am EST, the House is debating H.Con.Res. 28 ("Directing the President, pursuant to section 5(c) of the War Powers Resolution, to remove the United States Armed Forces from Afghanistan") and that's blocked for two hours of time (it is currently being aired, so you can watch that on the C-SPAN link). After that, this afternoon, will be the debate and vote on HR 1076.
