H.R. 2691. Fiscal 2004 Interior Appropriations/Vote on Rules of Debate on an Interior Department Spending Bill Which, In the View of Progressives, Underfunded Land and Wildlife Conservation Programs.
house Roll Call 372     Jul 16, 2003
Progressive Position:
Nay
Progressive Result:
Loss

Prior to House floor consideration, a rule drafted by the House Rules Committee-in essence an arm of the majority party leadership-must be adopted to set parameters on debate. On this vote, Republican leaders sought passage of a rule governing debate on the $19.6 billion Interior appropriations bill. The Interior spending bill provided funding in 2004 for the Department of the Interior and related federal agencies such as the Bureau of Land Management and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Progressives voted against the rule because it would prevent a House floor vote on an amendment-which was drafted by Congressman Obey (D-WI) and supported by Progressives-to add $569 million to the Interior appropriations bill for land and wildlife conservation programs. The rule governing debate on the 2004 Interior appropriations bill was adopted on a vote of 232-189 so Obey's amendment was killed without being voted upon.
