Semper Fi Act Hits Senate Floor, Berkeley Tastes the Pain

New, 1 comment

Until now, the Semper Fi Act of 2008, proposed by South Carolina Republican S. Jim DeMint in response to the Marine withdrawal hoopla was viewed largely as a symbolic threat. Nope. The proposal to shift $2.1 in federal funds to the Marines— monies now earmarked for Berkeley schools, among other initiatives— has gone to the Senate. Not well played. [SF Gate]
