Lee Amendment to the Intelligence Authorization Act

UPDATED: Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA) submitted an amendment to the House Committee on Rules for consideration to the 2009 Intelligence Authorization Act, H.R. 5959. The amendment would have provided "that no funds authorized may be used to support or maintain a covert action intended to undermine or overthrow a government of a member nation of the United Nations." The Rules Committee met on July 15 and rejected the amendment.
