The Interior Department manages federal lands, administers a wide range of domestic programs, and handles relations between the American Indian tribes and the federal government. Among the programs under the aegis of the department in 2002 were a firefighting program and a program to buy land for conservation purposes. Shadegg (R-AZ) proposed an amendment to the bill that funded Interior for 2003 that cut $36 million from the land acquisition program and added $23.1 million to the firefighting program. Progressives disagreed with these priorities: they felt both programs needed adequate funding, that there was no need to favor firefighting, and that firefighting in fact had enough money to meet its current needs. With the help of "no" votes from Progressives, the amendment was rejected 153-269.
