My Votes – Week of May 29th

Jun 05, 2023


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.


H.R. 3746

Fiscal Responsibility Act

Passed  |  314-117
My Vote  |  YES

This bill represents the largest government spending cut in American history, reducing the deficit by $2.1 trillion. It also claws back unspent COVID funds, strengthens work requirements for SNAP, and defunds Biden’s army of IRS agents.


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.


H.R. 2792

Small Entity Update Act

Passed  |  367-8
My Vote  |  YES

This bill requires the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to report on and revise the definition of “small entity” every five years. Agencies are required to consider the impact of their rules on small entities under the Regulatory Flexibility Act.


H.R. 2795

Enhancing Multi-Class Share Disclosures Act

Passed  |  347-30
My Vote  |  YES

This bill requires issuers of securities with multi-class share structures to disclose certain information in any proxy solicitation or consent solicitation material. A multi-class share structure occurs when a company issues two or more classes of shares that have different voting rights. For example, a company may issue one class of shares with no or few voting rights for the public, and another class with more voting rights for company founders and executives.


H.R. 2796

Promoting Opportunities for Non-Traditional Capital Formation Act

Passed  |  409-9
My Vote  |  YES

This bill expands the functions of the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of the Advocate for Small Business Capital Formation.


H. RES. 382

Condemning the rise of antisemitism and calling on elected officials to identify and educate others on the contributions of the Jewish American community

Passed  |  429-0
My Vote  |  YES

This resolution condemns the rise of anti-semitism and calls on elected officials to identify and educate others on the contributions of the Jewish American community. Promoting tolerance in our communities.


H.R. 2797

Equal Opportunity for All Investors Act of 2023

Passed  |  383-13
My Vote  |  YES

This bill expands who may be considered an accredited investor, allowing more opportunity for Americans everywhere.
