U.S. House Rejects Bill To End Military's Sports Sponsorship By Vote Of 216-202
Published July 19, 2012
ALL IN FAVOR? The AP’s Donna Cassata noted the rejected measure “had targeted the money the National Guard spends to sponsor Dale Earnhardt Jr., NASCAR's most popular driver, as well as IndyCar Series driver JR Hildebrand.” It also would have “cut money the Army spends on the National Hot Rod Association drag racing, funds the Marine Corps uses for the Ultimate Fighting Championship and money spent on bass fishing.” The House also rejected an effort by McCollum “to reduce the budget for the military's 140 bands and 5,000 full-time musicians from $388 million to $200 million” (AP, 7/18).
