H.R. 933, the Consolidated and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013 was passed by the Senate on March 20, 2013 without Sen. Tom Coburn’s (R-Okla.) controversial Amendment 67, which would have limited federal agencies attendance at domestic meetings or conferences to no more than 25 employees. The amendment, added onto the bill on March 14, was opposed by ASAE, PCMA and other industry organizations, through online petitions, emails, congressional visits and direct advocacy on Capitol Hill.
