  • 1: On the Amendment: S.Amdt. 92 to S.Amdt. 2 to S. 1 - To permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation FundNay

    Key Vote 1: On the Amendment: S.Amdt. 92 to S.Amdt. 2 to S. 1 - To permanently reauthorize the Land and Water Conservation Fund

    The Land and Water Conservation Fund provides money for states and the federal government to purchase land for "conservation" purposes. This fund has been used to purchase millions of acres of private property, further increasing the massive quantity of government-owned property in the United States. Taxpayers should not be subsidizing the government takeover of ever-greater swaths of property, yet this amendment would make this land-purchase fund permanent.

    Key Vote 2: On the Amendment: S.Amdt. 1116 to H.R. 2 - To require that the "Doc Fix" bill be fully paid for

    H.R. 2 is a bill to permanently prevent a scheduled cut in payments to doctors under Medicare, as well as to reauthorize S-CHIP - the federal health insurance program for children. Aside from numerous other policy issues, this bill also adds over $140 billion to the deficit over ten years. This amendment by Senator Mike Lee would invoke the statutory pay-as-you-go requirement so that Congress would be forced to find savings to erase the deficits created by this bill.

    Key Vote 3: On the Amendment: S.Amdt. 1243 to S.Amdt. 1221 to H.R. 1314 - To Strike Trade Adjustment Assistance from the Bill

    This amendment, by Senator Flake, would strike the extension of the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program from the bill to create fast-track trade authority. TAA is an ineffective and duplicative program that gives financial assistance to workers and companies that have been negatively affected by free trade. TAA has been shown to be ineffective and even harmful to those it is supposed to benefit, and should be allowed to expire.
