RULE BILLS

A rule bill is a bill passed through a full House vote under a rule that has been voted and agreed upon by the Rules Committee. Rule bills require a simple majority of the House to pass (218 votes) through a recorded vote.

1/29/24

H.R. 5585

Agent Raul Gonzalez Officer Safety Act

Passed  |  271-154
My Vote  |  YES

This bill protects all our brave Eastern Washington law enforcement officers by criminalizing fleeing from agents or officers in a high-speed chase.


1/31/24

H.R. 7024

Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act

Passed  |  357-70
My Vote  |  YES

People in Eastern Washington are falling behind thanks to Biden’s inflation crisis and rising costs. Paychecks just aren’t going as far as they used to, and it’s making life more difficult. The Tax Relief for American Families and Workers Act will help ease that burden by expanding the Child Tax Credit for parents raising a family and supporting small business owners struggling to keep the lights on. I look forward to this bill making a real difference and getting us back on a path of renewed hope and optimism for the future.


1/31/24

H.R. 6678

Consequences for Social Security Fraud Act

Passed  |  272-155
My Vote  |  YES

H.R. 6678 makes aliens inadmissible to, and removable from, the United States if such they are convicted of or admit to committing Social Security fraud and identification document fraud. The bottom line is that America is a land with a rich history of immigration, but we are also a nation of laws that must be followed. We cannot continue to allow millions of people with a total disregard for our laws to enter our country.


1/31/24

H.R. 6679

No Immigration Benefits for Hamas Terrorists Act

Passed  |  422-2 (1 Present)
My Vote  |  YES

This is a common sense bill that makes illegal immigrants that are members of Hamas or participated in the October 7, 2023, attacks against Israel inadmissible to or deportable from the United States. With our southern border in crisis due to President Biden’s policies, we cannot allow terrorists to enter our nation.


SUSPENSION BILLS

A suspension bill is a bill passed by the House through suspending the rules to move quickly, circumventing the House Rules Committee. Suspension bills are typically less controversial pieces of legislation, and as the rules are being suspended, they require a higher threshold, two-thirds of those voting in the House, to pass. Additionally, these bills are often passed by a voice vote, without a formal roll call vote.

1/31/24
