About The Keyvote

This is a procedural vote in the House to go to conference with the Senate on the USA FREEDOM Reauthorization Act, H.R. 6172. House Democratic leadership botched the handling of this bill from the beginning, denying an open process to members. Leading up to this particular vote, Democratic leadership and House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) continued to play games, negotiating in bad faith with surveillance reformers. A conference committee would lead to reopening H.R. 6172 and watering down reforms, such as the Lee-Leahy amendment, that had passed the Senate. This is why FreedomWorks has taken a rare step of opposing a procedural motion in the House.
