    Key Vote 3: DeSantis-Budd Letter Urging a Public Vote to Reinstate Earmarks

    Reps. Ron DeSantis (R-Fla.) and Ted Budd (R-N.C.) have spearheaded a letter that urges House Republican leaders to hold a public vote to reinstate earmarks, should the House Republican Conference move forward on the tone-deaf notion of reinstating earmarks. Put simply, there must be a public and transparent process, including a recorded vote. The American public has a right to know which members are voting to reopen the favor factory by bringing back this currency of corruption. (Signers updated as of February 14, 2018.)

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 26: On Agreeing to the Conference Report for the Farm Bill, H.R. 2Yea

    Key Vote 26: On Agreeing to the Conference Report for the Farm Bill, H.R. 2

    Given our current out-of-control government spending, American taxpayers cannot afford to continue to use billions of dollars to prop up failing agri-businesses. The subsidies programs, as bloated and wasteful as they are now, will increase in cost by over one billion over the next ten years. This is inexcusable given our crushing national debt.

    "Nay" votes scored.
  • 27: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: First Step Act, S. 756Yea

    Key Vote 27: On Motion to Suspend the Rules and Pass: First Step Act, S. 756

    The First Step Act would reform the federal criminal justice system to make our communities safer by reducing crime and focusing limited resources on the most dangerous offenders. By increasing access to and instituting incentives for inmate participation in recidivism reduction programming and by modestly modifying some sentencing laws, the First Step Act would provide much-needed changes to the federal criminal justice system. The bill would reform four areas of sentencing law by reforming 18 U.S.C. 924(c) stacking to clarify that enhancements for second and subsequent offenses are used only on those who are true recidivists, by tailoring 21 U.S.C. 841 to modify mandatory minimum sentence enhancements and those who they may apply to, by applying the Fair Sentencing Act of 2010 retroactively, and by expanding the existing federal safety valve for judges sentencing individuals with little to no criminal history.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 28: Signers to the Discharge Petition for H.Res. 873Yea

    Key Vote 28: Signers to the Discharge Petition for H.Res. 873

    If passed, this petition would pave the way for the return of the Obama administration’s heavy-handed Internet regulations, which were overturned by the Restoring Internet Freedom Order. FreedomWorks will key vote the signers of this petition, treating signatures as an anti-freedom position for the purposes of our 2018 Congressional Scorecard.
