2005: 109th Congress 69%

  • 1: S. 5 - Class Action Fairness Act of 2005Yea

    Key Vote 1: S. 5 - Class Action Fairness Act of 2005

    S. 5 is a major step towards stopping lawsuit abuse by limiting venue shopping by trial lawyers. Unscrupulous attorneys often bring cases to a handful of state ‘tort hellholes’ where judges and juries consistently produce unreasonable awards with national economic impact. This new legislation would move the largest cases to federal courts, where judges are better equipped to consider the national scope of each case.

    "Yea" votes scored.

    Key Vote 2: H.R. 3 - Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users

    Key Vote 5: H.J.Res. 27 - Withdrawing approval of the United States from the Agreement establishing the World Trade Organization

  • 6: H.R. 22 - Postal Accountability and Enhancement ActYea

    Key Vote 6: H.R. 22 - Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act

    This bill fails to bring the market discipline the postal system needs and acts as yet another taxpayer bailout of the Postal Service. The US Postal Service desperately needs reform, but H.R. 22 is not reform.

    "Nay" votes scored.

  • 14: H.R. 1606 - Online Freedom of Speech ActYea

    Key Vote 14: H.R. 1606 - Online Freedom of Speech Act

    H.R. 1606 would amend the Federal Election Campaign Act to exclude Internet communications from the Act’s definition of “public communication.” The bill is commonly regarded as the “blogger protection” bill since it addresses concerns that bloggers who regularly engage in mass public communications will become subject to federal campaign finance regulations—- especially if they reference a federal candidate 30 days before a primary election or 60 days before a general election. Of course, all restrictions on speech content offend the Constitution, but protecting bloggers will be a good first step.

    "Yea" votes scored.
  • 15: H.R. 4128 - Private Property Rights Protection ActYea

    Key Vote 15: H.R. 4128 - Private Property Rights Protection Act
