During debate on the 2004 foreign operations appropriations bills-a spending bill to provide $17.2 billion in funding for purposes such as foreign military financing and programs to combat the global spread of AIDS-Representative Kilpatrick (D-MI) offered an amendment which would have increased the amount in the bill for HIV/AIDS programs by $300 million. Progressives voted in support of Kilpatrick's measure because, in their view, the U.S. should be playing a more active role in combating the AIDS pandemic. Republicans contended that enough money was already contained in the spending bill for AIDS programs and voted against Kilpatrick's amendment. By a vote of 192-228, the Kilpatrick amendment was rejected and the additional $300 million for AIDS programs was not included in the spending package.
