Flag Desecration Amendment
On Passage
House Roll Call No. 296
109th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 286-130 (see complete tally)
On June 22, 2005, the House passed H.J. Res. 10, the Flag Desecration constitutional amendment, by a vote of 286 to 130. The ACLU opposed this amendment because it would needlessly infringe on free speech by amending the Constitution to ban "desecration" of the American flag. This proposed constitutional amendment would be the first to restrict the freedoms guaranteed to Americans by the Bill of Rights. (Roll Call Vote No. 296)
