Needle Exchange neg - GT Dartmouth 2K9 3 Unpopular - Republicans Republicans oppose the plan NYT 7/31 (New York Times “Washington Supports Exchange of Needles July 31 st 2009 http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/01/us/01needle.html? _r=1&adxnnl=1&pagewanted=print&adxnnlx=1249139047-) WASHINGTON — City officials on Friday called on Congress not to reinstate a ban that prevented the nation’s capital from using local money to distribute clean needles to drug users . Until 2007, when the ban was lifted, Washington was the only city in the country forbidden by Congress from using both local and federal tax dollars to distribute clean needles to drug addicts. The capital has one of the fastest-growing H.I.V. and AIDS problems in the country. A House amendment now under consideration would essentially reinstate that ban by prohibiting the city from providing money to any needle exchange program that operates within 1,000 feet of virtually any location where children gather . Citing the effort to reinstate the ban as both a public health concern and the violation of a basic political right of home rule, Eleanor Holmes Norton, Washington’s delegate to the House, said the ban would be a “disaster” for the city. “The Republican minority wants to bring back the old days when they had a field day with D.C. appropriations, imposing their personal views or those of their constituents on a self-governing jurisdiction of 600,000 residents in the nation’s capital ,” Ms. Norton said. “ This is just wrong .” The amendment is part of the bill that gives the District of Columbia its federal appropriation for 2010. Since Washington is not part of a state, Congress controls its system of government. And for nearly a decade, members — citing concerns about worsening drug abuse — inserted language into the city’s budget bill that prohibited financing needle exchange programs. “Children should not be out playing kickball and watching people exchange needles for illegal drug use,” said Representative Jack Kingston, Republican of Georgia and the sponsor of the current amendment .
