Republicans Agree to Back Restoration of Some Cuts


New York Times (03/03/95) P. A19

The Republican majority on the House Appropriations Committee decided on Thursday to reinstate millions of dollars cut from social programs such as AIDS prevention. The committee approved an amendment proposed by Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D.- Calif.) to restore $36 million for AIDS care and prevention programs--$13 million for the Ryan White Care Act and $23 million for an HIV prevention program by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "You do not want to go home to explain a no vote on this matter," Pelosi warned the panel.
