Her proposal cut HUD salaries and made cuts to other programs, and it was approved in a voice vote.
Capito's language was one of several proposals that the House disposed of late Tuesday. One interesting proposal was from Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.), who offered language that would increase funding for HUD's limited English proficiency program by $150,000, to $450,000.
Grayson suggested that Republicans should accept it in order to help their outreach to Hispanic voters, and the House accepted it in a voice vote.
Others amendments disposed of Tuesday night were from:
— Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), moving $3 million from the Department of Housing and Urban Development's executive office to field operations. Accepted in voice vote.
— Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), increasing funding for the Section 8 housing voucher program by $2 billion, without an offset. Killed in a point of order.
— Nadler, increasing funding for an AIDS housing program by $29 million. Withdrawn.
— Tom Latham (R-Iowa), making a technical correction to keep 2014 funding for rental assistance at 2013 levels. Accepted in voice vote.
— Paul Broun (R-Ga.), cutting rental housing assistance by $5 million. Rejected in voice vote.
— Al Green (D-Texas), adding $12 million to the fair housing program to fight discrimination. Withdrawn.
— Broun, cutting funding for Federal Maritime Commission salaries by $100,000, bringing it to 2013 levels. Accepted in voice vote.
