H.R. 6157 Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 2019 Yes This bill provides $674.6 billion in total discretionary budget authority for the Department of Defense for fiscal year (FY) 2019. The bill provides $606.5 billion for the Department of Defense base budget, which is an increase of $17.1 billion above FY18 levels, and $68.1 billion for the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) account to support the Global War on Terrorism (GWOT). This funding level is consistent with the National Defense Authorization Act as well as the recently enacted budget agreement.

FAILED

121 – 301

H.R. 6136 Border Security and Immigration Reform Act of 2018 Yes This bill would enhance enforcement of existing immigration law, close immigration enforcement loopholes, end the catch and release policy, provide $25 billion in funding to secure the border, provide a legislative solution for the current beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, and establish a new merit-based visa program. This is the only bill that would have ensured construction of the border wall and provide long-term solution for DACA recipients. It also addresses the family separation issue, ensuring that families are held together for the length of their adjudication.

PASSED

288 – 116

H.R. 2083 Endangered Salmon and Fisheries Predation Prevention Act

 

Yes Eastern Washington believes in both supporting clean, renewable hydropower and protecting our endangered salmon, a species so unique to the history of our region. Over the past 80 years, we’ve seen steady increases in salmon return rates on the Columbia and Snake Rivers, largely due to increased technology and innovation at our dams. This bill is another important step in protecting our endangered salmon. By mitigating sea lion predation we can increase fish recovery without costing Washingtonians hundreds of millions of dollars. I am proud to be a cosponsor of this bill to help advocate for Eastern Washington and protect our fish.

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.
