Senate Adopts Ben Nelson Amendment Supporting Budget Cuts

An amendment offered by Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) to the SBIR and STTR Reauthorization Act (S. 493) has been adopted by a vote of 98-1.

It was aimed at gauging support for cutting the Senate’s own budget by 5%. This was a “sense of the Senate” amendment, which means it is non-binding.
