Senate rejects security

boos
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate rejected Demo-
cratic efforts to boost anti-terrorism spending for big cities
yesterday and neared approval of legislation financing the
Homeland Security Department next year.
The price tag of the measure grew to about $36 billion
as senators bowed to pressure from farm-state lawmak-
ers and added $2.9 billion to help growers and livestock
producers - mostly in the Midwest - suffering from
drought.
The bill provides federal aid for anti-terror efforts by
local police, fire and emergency-responder departments, as
well as to the government's border security, immigration
and other domestic security programs. Overall, the mea-
sure would exceed Bush's request for such programs by
more than $1 billion.
With elections less than two months off, Democrats were
hoping the GOP would find it painful to vote against a series
of amendments to boost security spending.
But for the most part, Republicans fended off such
amendments, such as one by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton (D-N.Y.) to add $625 million to the $875 million
in the bill for cities considered at high risk of terrorist
attacks.

for big cities
"My sense is Democrats are proposing them for political
purposes," Sen. Sam Brownback (R-Kan.) said. "We need
a balance between providing money for homeland security,
and keeping deficits from going higher."
"I don't know why there isn't a political price to pay," Sen-
ate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) said. "I think in
part they think the American people aren't watching."
The Senate neared a final vote on the bill less than three
weeks from the start of the government's new budget year.
Underscoring the budget logjam the Republican-run Con-
gress faces, the measure would be only the second of the
13 annual spending bills for next year that the Senate has
approved.
As the Homeland Security vote approached, the Senate
Appropriations Committee approved three other spend-
ing bills, including a $20.2 billion measure for the Inte-
rior Department and other land and cultural programs. It
included $2.9 billion for battling wildfires, about $500 mil-
lion more than Bush requested.
By a 14 to 9 vote, senators from lower Missouri River
states failed to kill a provision letting the Army Corps of
Engineers slow upstream water releases in states suffering
from drought.
