senate Roll Call 6     Jan 17, 2003
Y = Conservative
N = Progressive
Winning Side:
Conservative

This vote involves a procedural motion offered by Senator Ted Stevens (R-AK) to table (or strike down) an amendment offered by Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) to the 2003 federal budget restoring $635 million for the Edward Byrne State and Local Law Enforcement Assistance Program. This program--cut by Congress to adhere to the President's proposed limits on federal spending--provides federal block grants to states and localities for programs designed to reduce drug abuse through prevention and treatment services. Progressives supported the amendment as a way to mitigate drug abuse using educational and treatment services rather than the criminal justice system. The Harkin amendment was tabled on a 52-46 vote against the measure.
