The Senator from Arizona [Mr. McCain] proposes an amendment numbered 592. </p>
(Purpose: To continue funding at fiscal year 2008 levels through the end of fiscal year 2009)
Strike all after the enacting clause and insert the following:
SECTION 1. CONTINUING 2008 FUNDING LEVELS.
Section 106(3) of Public Law 110-329 is amended by striking ``March 6, 2009'' and inserting ``September 30, 2009''.
The key, kids, is "continuing 2008 funding levels". Yes, the earmarks would've been dropped from the $410B omnibus spending bill being debated now. That would have been good. But it restores the spending priorities of the Bush Administration. Yeah, THAT's change we can believe in.
