February 24, 2011

The 162 proposed amendments to the House’s continuing resolution earlier this month included a number of highly conservative proposals, testing the will of some Republicans representing less conservative districts. National Journal analyzed 20 of the most ideological amendments to see which votes caused the most splintering within the GOP. The amendments are described below along with the results of the votes.

Roll No. 53: Increase funds for Community Oriented Policing Services grants by $298 million, offset by reductions to NASA funding. (An “aye” vote represents opposition to the conservative position here.) Passed, 228-203.

Roll No. 54: Cut funds for the Legal Services Corporation by $324 million. Failed, 171-259.

 

Roll No. 55: Cut funds to ARPA-E, the Energy Department’s creative research agency, by $50 million. Failed, 170-262.
