01/31/07--Republican Study Group members Rep. Mike Pence, R-Ind., Rep. Paul D. Ryan, R-Wis., Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, and Rep. John Campbell, RÐCalif., during a news conference on the joint resolution the House passed Wednesday afternoon providing $463.5 billion in fiscal 2007 appropriations. The measure was passed easily, 286-140. A number of Republicans voted for the legislation (H J Res 20), though there was widespread grumbling about the process under which it was considered. The rule did not allow foramendments. Republicans also spoke out against the contents of the package, particularly the $2.5 billion for base closures, several billion dollars below what President Bush requested for fiscal 2007 but $1 billion more than in fiscal 2006.
