Anti-ter­ror­ism fund­ing boost

By a vote of 200 for and 227 against, the House on Wed­nes­day re­jected a GOP ef­fort to boost spend­ing in HR 264 for the Trea­sury Depart­ment's Of­fice of Ter­ror­ism and Fi­nan­cial In­tel­li­gence, which com­bats ter­ror­ist fi­nanc­ing in U.S. and in­ter­na­tional fi­nan­cial sys­tems, en­forces eco­nomic sanc­tions and po­lices global money laun­der­ing. Repub­li­cans sought to in­crease the of­fice's 2019 bud­get by $2 mil­lion to $161 mil­lion. A yes vote was to in­crease the bill's anti-ter­ror­ism fund­ing by about 1 per­cent.

Yes: Fitz­patrick, Meuser

No: Dean, Houla­han, Wild, Cartwright
