House cuts Justice money over gun documents fight
House agrees to cut Justice Department salaries in fight over gun-tracking operation documents
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' The GOP-controlled House has made clear that it's unhappy with how long the Justice Department is taking to hand over documents regarding a U.S. gun-tracking operation in Mexico.

By a voice vote, the House agreed to a symbolic $1 million cut in money for salaries at the department. That move was orchestrated by South Carolina Republican Trey Gowdy during action Tuesday on the Justice Department spending bill. Gowdy says Congress has been too patient with the department.

In Operation Fast and Furious, U.S. agents hoping to track weapons allowed hundreds of guns to flow from U.S. gun shops in Arizona into Mexico. Two of the guns were later discovered at the scene of the killing of a U.S. border agent.
