HOMELAND SECURITY SENATE SLASHES TRANSIT SECURITY FUNDING: Demonstrating dangerously short memories, Senate conservatives yesterday cut transit security funding by $50 million, to $100 million, on the way to passing a $31.8 billion Homeland Security bill. Just eight days after terrorist attacks struck London's bus and underground metro systems, conservative "leaders beat back a series of attempts pressed by senators from states with large urban centers to increase money for mass transit protection by as much as $1.4 billion," the Los Angeles Times reports

" pressed by senators from states with large urban centers to increase money"
