Estuary Protection Program. HR 4715 (Roll Call 208)
The House voted down a
motion to reduce a 53% increase in spending on estuary protection by imposing a
spending cap as long as the budget is in deficit. ACU supported this modest attempt to
limit spending on non-essentials while the budget is running a $1.4 trillion deficit, but the
House rejected it April 15, 2010, by a vote of 192-214: R 164-0; D 28-214; I 0-0.
