HR 5093. Interior Appropriations for 2003/Vote on Rules of Debate to Provide Funding for the Management of Public Lands.
house Roll Call 302     Jul 16, 2002
Progressive Position:
Nay
Progressive Result:
Loss

The Department of the Interior administers a wide range of programs, most of them involving the management of public lands. However, the bill to fund this department for 2003 also included funding for the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities, and Progressives felt the funding in the bill for these two programs was inadequate. Because they opposed the bill as it was originally proposed by Republicans, they also opposed the bill's "rule": the set of instructions for debate that must be passed before the bill can be considered. They voted "no" on this rule, but it had enough Democratic and Republican support to pass by a wide margin, 322-101.
