SENATE: CRIME BILL

The Senate voted 94 for and four against to adopt an amendment more than doubling the cost and scope of pending anti-crime legislation (S 1607). The measure increased spending from $10 billion to $22.3 billion over five years.

In part, the bill funds 100,000 new state and local police slots and sets stiffer penalties for offenses such as hate crimes and arson. It funds construction of jails and regional prisons for state and local offenders, facilities for violent juvenile offenders and boot camps for certain less-than-hardened criminals.

A yes vote was to more than double the size of pending crime-control legislation.
