I hope that I can tap into the vast knowledge of DKOS readers for some data on the legislative record of Senator Scott Brown (R-MA). Here is what I know about the data that I am searching for. I read an article about 4 months ago that Scott Brown attached an amendment to a huge very critical appropriations bill that was up for a vote in the Senate. The article stated that the Brown amendment effectively let the Wall Street banks (whom had agreed to a $19 billion settlement with the federal government for their use of widespread "Robo-signing" practices in their housing foreclosures) completely evade payment of the $19 billion settlement.  Request continues below after the orange page separator.

I spent sometime on the Library of Congress' THOMAS site looking through all of Scott Brown's legislative activity without success. So I am appealing to anyone on DKOS who may have the information that I am looking for. What I need is the title and Senate number of the bill that included the Brown amendment when it passed the Senate. I also need the Senate amendment number for the Brown amendment, its title and any co-sponsors for his amendment. Finally I would also like the date that it passed the Senate and the date when it was signed into law. Any and all help towards providing me with this data will be greatly appreciated.

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
