How They Voted: Comparing Votes on the Obey and Ramstad Amendments, March 29, 2000

(The Obey amendment would have delayed most military aid to Colombia until July 31, when Congress would have had to vote to approve it separately.)

(The Ramstad amendment would have cut out the entire Colombia section of the supplemental, including military aid as well as economic aid, aid to Colombia’s neighbors, and funds for U.S. agencies.)
