Extension of the Law on Public Financing

Past | 221-212
my vote | No (the congressional record reflects my opposition to this bill)

The Democrats, who control the House, Senate and White House, have once again failed to do their job. It is unrealistic to expect Republicans to negotiate supply bills as Democrats continue to push for huge increases in domestic spending through their reconciliation plan. With our national debt skyrocketing and inflation at the highest levels in thirty years, we cannot afford to think of supply bills in isolation. I hope that in the new year we can make progress in finalizing bills that include strong support for our national defense, long-standing pro-life protections and resources to deal with the current crisis. at the border.


SUSPENSION INVOICES

A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House suspending the rules to act quickly, bypassing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are generally less controversial pieces of legislation, and because the rules are suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of the voters in the House, to pass. In addition, these bills are often passed by voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.
