HR 5895 Reducing Non-Defense Discretionary Spending by 1 Percent (Roll Call 251)



The Blackburn (R-TN, ACUF Lifetime 95.7%) amendment to the energy and water appropriations bill calls for a 1 percent across-the-board cut in non-defense discretionary spending within the bill. ACU supports this modest spending cut, especially at a time the country's budget deficit is approaching $1 trillion per year and the national debt is topping $22 trillion and supported this amendment. The House defeated the amendment on June 7, 2018 by a vote of 155-262.
