#Florida Republican probe of why #Orlando didn’t get terror money – #HomelandSecurity

Florida Republican John L. Mica calls for congressional investigation  into Homeland Security’s evaluation process, and Florida Sens. Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson urged the agency to revisit its assessment of Central Florida.

Forty-nine patrons at Pulse nightclub were gunned down early Sunday by Omar Mateen, who authorities said proclaimed allegiance to ISIS, in the nation’s deadliest mass shooting.

The killings came six months after Orlando was denied access to grants through the Urban Area Security Initiative, which offers federal funding for local efforts to predict, respond to and recover from acts of terrorism.
