— -- Congress failed to move forward a $1.1 billion funding package to help the country address the outbreak of Zika for the third time Tuesday, just as Florida reported seven new locally-transmitted cases of the virus.

The CDC has warned lawmakers that it needs federal funds to combat the disease's spread.
