Supplemental Appropriations Bill

June 7, 1985
The House voted by the narrowest of margins to chop 31 Corps of Engineers' water projects--dubbed "pork barrel" by opponents--from a supplemental appropriations bill for fiscal 1985. The action, on a 203-202 roll call, was a defeat for Appropriations Committee Chairman Jamie L. Whitten (D-Miss.) and a victory for House members attempting to end a traditional buddy system for deciding where dams are built and harbors are deepened.

The article "U.S. Focuses on Aiding African Union in Darfur" (May 12) might more aptly have been titled "After Declaring a Genocide, Bush Abandons Darfur." For the Bush administration to oppose the bipartisan measure that passed the Senate is a travesty. Due to administration opposition, House Republican leaders deleted the measure from the final version of a supplemental appropriations bill. The measure had called for sanctions against Sudan and a "no-fly" zone to stop the killing of innocents in Darfur.

The House on Friday sent to President Bush a $3.5-billion emergency spending bill for veterans, education, refugee assistance and other programs requiring a cash infusion this year. The fiscal 1989 supplemental appropriations bill, approved by the Senate on Thursday night, was passed by the House, 318 to 6, two days after the chamber rejected a version that would have sparked a veto fight with the President. Bush was expected to sign the revised bill, which was stripped of $821 million that House Democrats had earmarked for anti-drug programs.

Budget Battle By a vote of 172 to 252, the House defeated an amendment sponsored by the Democratic leadership in hopes of getting Republicans, Democrats, conservatives, liberals and moderates to budget priorities. This occurred during debate on a bill (HR 2072) providing $4.7 billion in supplemental appropriations for domestic programs in the remaining five months of fiscal 1989. It caused Democratic leaders to abruptly pull the bill from the floor. The bill's price tag is $2.6 billion more than sought by the Bush Administration, as a result of the Democratic-led Appropriations Committee adding money for housing, homeless, veterans, anti-drug and other domestic programs.
