Torture Prevention
On Motion to Instruct Conferees
House Roll Call No. 630
109th Congress, 1st Session

Passed: 308-122 (see complete tally)
On December 14, 2005, the House approved a motion to instruct conferees to pass the McCain Amendment prohibiting torture and abuse by a vote of 308-122. The ACLU supported this motion because the amendment reinforces the bar on cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment of anyone held anywhere in the world by any agency of the U.S. government and requires military interrogators to abide by the detainee treatment standards in the Army Field Manual on Interrogations. The motion to instruct was on the Defense Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2006 (H.R. 2863). (Roll Call Vote No. 630)
