Black Caucus Opposed War Funding Bill

 

WASHINGTON – Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Barbara Lee recognized the majority of members of the Congressional Black Caucus who joined in rejecting the supplemental appropriations bill which passed the House in a vote of 308-114.

 

“Today a majority of the CBC spoke with one voice in opposing the war supplemental,” said Rep. Lee. “The bill which passed was a stripped down measure without key provisions needed by many in our nation. The majority of CBC members voted against the bill because it failed to address key domestic priorities.

“The war funding in this bill attracted significant Republican support. If Republicans had not voted for the war funding in this bill, it would not have passed. I am proud that a majority of the members of our caucus decided to stand up for priorities we have long advocated,” said Rep. Lee.

Members of the Congressional Black Caucus opposed the supplemental appropriations bill because the Senate version of the bill passed by the House was stripped of key domestic and CBC priorities: funding for teachers, police and fire fighters, Pell Grants, youth summer jobs, the TANF Emergency Contingency Fund, and settlement funds for the decades-long discrimination Pigford and Cobell lawsuits suit against the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
