Watch: #EndTheQuota in House Appropriations Committee Meeting June 11, 2014
In the House Appropriations hearing on the Department of Homeland Security funding, there were a lot of great statements on the bed quota throughout the hearing. Rep. Lowey condemns the bed quota in her opening remarks. Rep. Quigley introduced an amendment to eliminate the quota, and Reps. Honda, Serrano, and Valadao all spoke in favor the amendment. Quigley withdrew the amendment since he knew it wouldn’t pass the committee; however, no one spoke out in opposition to the amendment.
