Freshman Republican introduces bill to halt funding Libya operation
A freshman member of the House Armed Services Committee will introduce a bill Tuesday to cut off U.S. funding for operations in Libya.

Rep. Joe Heck's (R-Nev.) bill calls for a 30-day exit plan and would prevent any additional defense spending for Libya unless it is required for disengagement.

Responding to criticism by Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) that politics are influencing his party's foreign policy views, Heck said Tuesday that his response would be the same to a Republican or Democrat president.
