The House today voted to continue funding the Justice Department's lawsuit against the tobacco industry and also to allow the department to use funds from other departments for that purpose. By a tally of 215 to 183, the House rejected an effort to cut off the funding that was led by the Republican leadership and by tobacco-state representatives from both parties. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
