S. 524 Shaheen Amendment More Emergency Spending (Roll Call 30)

The Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) amendment to the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act adds $600 million in additional "emergency" spending, thus adding to the deficit. ACU opposes the constant use of "emergency" spending, which avoids offsetting spending reductions to pay for it, and opposed this amendment. The Senate passed the amendment on March 2, 2016 by a vote of 48-47.
