The Jaime Zapata Border Enforcement Security Task Force Act, named in memory of the slain Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agent, moved one step closer to passage today.

In a procedural vote, the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs unanimously approved the request by Sen. Joseph Lieberman, I-Conn., and Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, to substitute the already-approved House version of the law for the slightly different Senate version.

Today’s action clears the way for the Senate committee to approve the legislation by Texas Rep. Henry Cuellar tomorrow, a spokesperson for Cuellar said. The bill will head to a committee markup tomorrow.
