H.R. 5293 Walberg Amendment Afghanistan Infrastructure Projects (Roll Call 326)
The Congressman Tim Walberg (R-MI-07) amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill prohibits spending on Afghanistan Infrastructure Fund projects. ACU opposes additional spending on such projects, which the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction has found to be wrought with waste, susceptible to fraud, and unsustainable over the long term, and supported this amendment. The House passed the amendment on June 16, 2016 by a vote of 218-210.
