Congressman Peter Welch and New Hampshire’s Carol Shea-Porter and Paul Hodes have voted with the majority of the House to pass a bill that would triple the money to fight AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis around the world.

The measure passed the House 303-115.

President Bush, who first floated the idea of a campaign against the scourge of AIDS in his 2003 State of the Union speech, supports the five-year, $48 billion plan.
