Flag Desecration Constituional Amendment
On Passage
House Roll Call No. 234
108th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 300-125 (see complete tally)
On June 3, 2003, the House passed the flag desecration amendment (H.J. Res. 4) by a vote of 300 to 125. The ACLU opposed this amendment because it would needlessly infringe on free speech by amending the U.S. Constitution to ban desecration of the American flag. This proposed constitutional amendment would be the first to restrict the freedoms guaranteed Americans by the Bill of Rights. (Roll Call Vote No. 234)
