WASHINGTON — The House voted Wednesday to take $298 million away from NASA and spend it on local policing.

The vote was 228-203. Reps. Bill Posey, R-Rockledge, and Sandy Adams, R-Orlando, opposed the switch, an amendment to a stopgap spending bill that would keep the government running for the rest of this fiscal year.
