Disaster Relief/ Summer Jobs. HR 4899 (Roll Call 186)
The House passed $5.1
billion in “stimulus” funding for disaster relief and summer jobs. This bill was voted on
less than 24 hours after introduction, not reviewed in committee and increased the deficit
by $4.5 billion. ACU opposes this kind of “emergency” spending. However, the House
passed the bill March 24, 2010, by a vote of 239-175.
