Senate Vote: 37     Vote Date: Mar 9th, 2011

Issue:  S. Amdt. 149 to H.R. 1  Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2011, in the nature of a substitute.  [Democratic Plan]  Question:  On passage (3/5 required).

Result:  Failed 42 to 58.  Democrat selected vote.

Bill Summary:  Provides $1.1 trillion in discretionary funding for the remainder of FY 2011 (approximately 7 months).

Analysis:  This is the White House-backed, Senate Democratic alternative to the GOP plan considered in the previous Senate vote (#36). It called for approximately $50 billion or 5 percent more in FY2011 spending than the unacceptable GOP plan.

Ten Democrats crossed party lines to vote against the measure and show their support for further spending cuts.

We have assigned (good vote) to the Nays and (bad vote) to the Yeas. (P = voted present; ? = not voting; blank = not listed on roll call.)
