DOJ Spending Legislation Clears House
By Andrew Ramonas | December 10, 2021 7:19 pm

Legislation that would fund the Justice Department for fiscal year 2010 is one step away from the president’s desk after passing the House today.

The $28 billion DOJ budget is part of the Commerce, Justice, science appropriations bill, which was packaged with several other fiscal year 2010 spending bills this week to make the Consolidated Appropriations Act 2010.

The omnibus bill passed the House by a 221-202 vote. No Republicans voted in favor of the legislation, and nearly 30 Democrats voted against the bill. Republicans expressed concerns about funding increases, according to The Hill. See the House roll call vote here.

The Senate has started debate on the bill. The motion to begin debate was approved by a 56-43 vote. No Republicans voted in favor of the motion. Democratic Sens. Evan Bayh (Ind.), Russ Feingold (Wisc.) and Robert Menendez (N.J.) also voted against the motion. See the Senate roll call vote here.

President Barack Obama requested $27 billion for DOJ. The Department received $26 billion for fiscal year 2009.
