September 15, 2014

In this MegaVote for Hawaii's 1st & 2nd Congressional Districts:

Recent Congressional Votes

Senate: Campaign Finance Constitutional Amendment - Cloture

House: Water Regulation - Passage

House: Health Plan Extensions - Passage

Upcoming Congressional Bills

Senate: Pay Check Fairness Act

House: Continuing Appropriations

Recent Senate Votes
Campaign Finance Constitutional Amendment - Cloture - Vote Rejected (54-42, 4 Not Voting)

The Senate failed to invoke cloture on a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment that would allow federal and state lawmakers to set limits on money raised and spent by candidates and others to influence elections. The amendment would give Congress and the states the power to distinguish between people and "corporations or other artificial entities created by law" and to block such entities from spending money on elections.

Sen. Brian Schatz voted YES
Sen. Mazie Hirono voted YES

Recent House Votes
Water Regulation - Passage - Vote Passed (262-152, 17 Not Voting)

The House voted to pass a bill that would prohibit the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers from finalizing an expansion of the federal water pollution law.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted NO

Health Plan Extensions - Passage - Vote Passed (247-167, 17 Not Voting)

The House voted to pass a bill that would allow health insurers to continue providing any group health plans offered in 2013 to existing or new enrollees, even if the plans do not comply with the coverage requirements under the 2010 health care law. The measure also would consider those plans as grandfathered and thus not subject to penalties for not complying with the law's individual mandate.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted YES
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted NO

Upcoming Votes
Pay Check Fairness Act - S2199

The Senate will consider a bill that would require employers to demonstrate that wage gaps between men and women with similar qualifications and in similar jobs have a business justification.

Continuing Appropriations - HJRES124

The House will consider a resolution that would provide continuing appropriations for government operations through December 11, 2014.
