RULE BILLS

H.R. 1836

Guard and Reserve GI Bill Parity Act

Passed  |  287-135
My Vote  |  NO (the Congressional record reflects my opposition to this bill)

At a time when it is becoming increasingly difficult for our branches of service to recruit active duty forces, I do not believe now is the time to make major reforms to GI Bill benefits. I supported a proposal that would have allowed Guard and Reserve members to accrue more times towards their GI bill benefit, but this proposal was voted down by House Democrats.


1/13/2021

H.R. 5746

NASA Enhanced Use Leasing Extension Act/John R. Lewis Act

Passed  |  220-203
My Vote  |  NO (the Congressional record reflects my opposition to this bill)

House Democrats used a bill meant to reauthorize NASA programs to give the Senate the opportunity to bypass the Senate filibuster and federalize elections. I voted against this stunt.
