Title: Special Committee on Contracts in Afghanistan and Iraq
Vote Smart's Synopsis:
Vote on the motion to suspend Rule XVI #4, and vote on an amendment which creates a special committee in the Senate to investigate practices surrounding contracts being awarded in Afghanistan and Iraq.
-This is not a vote on the passage of the amendment, but rather a vote to determine if the amendment violates Senate Rule XVI, #4. The rule requires that amendments to appropriation bills are relevant to the appropriation topic at hand and do not propose new general legislation.
