S. Con. Res. 23. Fiscal 2004 Budget Resolution/Vote to Reduce the Amount of Tax Cuts Contained in the Bill In Order to Increase Funding for State and Local Law Enforcement.
senate Roll Call 92     Mar 25, 2003
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) offered an amendment to the 2004 budget resolution to increase funding for state and local law enforcement authorities. Specifically, the amendment would have augmented federal block grants-including the Edward Byrne Memorial State and Local Law Enforcement Act, the Byrne Grant Program, and the Local Law Enforcement Block Grant Act-by $1 billion through 2004. Additionally, the amendment would have increased funding for first responders by $3.5 billion over two years and provided $4.5 billion for deficit reduction. To pay for the costs associated with Clinton's amendment, the size of the tax cuts contained in the budget resolution would have been reduced by an equal amount. Progressives supported Clinton's measure as a way to improve homeland security protections on the state and local levels. The Clinton amendment failed to draw majority support among Senators and was rejected on a 49- 50 vote.
