It's hot out there

A map showing temperatures across the United States during several record-breaking weeks of heat is on display on July 25 during a House Democrats' news conference conference with Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Rep. Norm Dicks (D-Wash.) and Rep. Edward Markey (D-Mass.). They discussed appropriations for the interior, environment and related agencies that could be limited by proposed Republican bills.
