HR 5121. Legislative Branch Appropriations for 2003/Vote to Restrict Funding to an Investigation into Incidences In Which Wealth Citizens Renounce Their Citizenship to Avoid Paying Taxes.
house Roll Call 320     Jul 18, 2002
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

In 1999, Archer (R-TX) had requested a report on the problem of wealthy U.S. citizens renouncing their citizenship to avoid paying taxes, and Moran (D-VA) suspected it was because Republicans did not agree with the report's conclusions. He proposed an amendment that would have cut $590,000 from the committee's funding until it released the report. Progressives supported the amendment because, like Moran, they suspected the report contained ammunition against Republicans. They voted for the amendment, but it was rejected 206-213.
