H.R. 2555, H. Res. 293, Fiscal 2004 Homeland Security Appropriations/Vote to Allow Consideration of a Department of Homeland Security Spending Bill.
house Roll Call 301     Jun 24, 2003
Progressive Position:
Nay
Progressive Result:
Loss

The subject of this vote was a procedural motion to allow consideration of a rule governing debate on a $30.4 billion spending bill for the Department of Homeland Security. Prior to House consideration, a rule drafted by the House Rules Committee must be adopted to set parameters on debate. Progressives voted against the motion based on their objections to the underlying spending bill. In their view, the appropriations bill did not contain enough funding for a wide range of homeland security needs, especially protections in potentially vulnerable areas such as the nation's seaports and public transit systems. As the majority party, however, Republicans had the votes and the motion to proceed was adopted on a straight party-line vote of 221-196.
