This article reports that the Senate Appropriations subcommittee on the District of Columbia will be chaired by Senator Sam Brownback, the chairman of the full committee has announced. Appropriations chairman Thad Cochran, announced on March 18, 2005 evening that the outgoing district subcommittee chairman Senator Mike DeWine, agreed to relinquish his post in order to comply with a Senate Republican Conference rule that limits Republican senators to chairing no more than two subcommittees. While DeWine is considered a moderate, Brownback is a strong social conservative, which raises the possibility that under his leadership the subcommittee might be more inclined to pile restrictions on district activities and programs during the annual appropriations process in the form of so called policy riders, such as prohibiting the use of city-raised revenue to fund clean-needle exchange programs for drug addicts.
