To the floor it goes

I noted U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions' proposal to reallocate more federal AIDS funds to the South two weeks ago. The Alabama Republican's plan took a tiny step closer to becoming reality Wednesday night, sailing through a Senate committee 19-1. (The sole dissenting vote came from U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.) Passage could prove more difficult in the full Senate, though, without an across-the-board increase in AIDS spending.
