Motion to Invoke Cloture on Amdt. No. 1959

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:49:00 -0500

Vote: Cloture Motion Rejected 39/60 This was a vote on the Trump-supported immigration plan, which would have provided a path to citizenship for the 1.8 million “Dreamers,” or immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children who meet certain criteria. In exchange, the amendment would have set aside $25 billion for a border wall, ended the diversity visa lottery, and placed other restrictions on legal immigration.



Motion to Invoke Cloture on Amdt. No. 1958 As Modified

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:28:00 -0500

Vote: Cloture Motion Rejected 54/45 This was a vote on the bipartisan immigration legislation supported by the Common Sense Coalition, a group of senators hoping to achieve a compromise on immigration reform. The legislation would have provided a path to citizenship for “Dreamers,” immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children who meet certain criteria, but would have prohibited the parents of Dreamers from requesting legal status based on their children’s citizenship. In exchange, the bill would have appropriated $25 billion for increased border security.



Motion to Invoke Cloture on Amdt. No. 1948

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 15:08:00 -0500

Vote: Cloture Motion Rejected 54/45 This was a vote to add text from S. 87, the Stop Dangerous Sanctuary Cities Act to Amdt. 1959. The amendment would have prohibited sanctuary jurisdictions from receiving certain federal grants. A sanctuary jurisdiction is a state or political subdivision that prohibits or restricts information sharing about an individual's immigration status, or compliance with a detainer request or notification of release request.



Motion to Invoke Cloture on Amdt. No. 1955

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 14:33:00 -0500

Vote: Cloture Motion Rejected 52/47 This was a vote on the bipartisan immigration legislation cosponsored by Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Christopher Coons (D-DE). The bill would have created a path to citizenship for “Dreamers,” immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children who meet certain criteria, in exchange for stricter border security measures. The President opposed the legislation because it would not have included any funding for a border wall.



H.R. 620: ADA Education and Reform Act of 2017

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 11:56:00 -0500

Vote: Passed 225/192 A bill which just passed the House would update the law for disabled Americans for modern times, say Republicans. Democrats say it would set disabled Americans’ civil rights back decades. #### Context The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, more commonly called the ADA, was a landmark law. It outlawed discrimination in employment, housing, or other areas on the basis of the applicant being disabled. It also required most businesses and buildings to accommodate disabled people, with features such as mandatory wheelchair ramps. The law’s components were hardly controversial among Congress members at the time, passing the House 377–28 and the Senate 91–6. Yet in the decades since, most Republicans contend that provisions of the law have been exploited by ...






H.R. 3299: Protecting Consumers’ Access to Credit Act of 2017

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 17:12:00 -0500

Vote: Passed 245/171 H.R. 3299 amends the Revised Statutes, the Home Owners’ Loan Act, the Federal Credit Union Act, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Act to require the rate of interest on certain loans remain unchanged regardless of whether a bank has subsequently sold or assigned the loan to a third party. In 2015, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit (Second Circuit) decided in Madden v. Midland Funding, LLC (Madden) that while the National Bank Act (NBA) allowed a federally chartered bank to charge interest under the laws of its home state on loans it makes nationwide, non-banks that bought those loans could not continue to collect that interest because non-banks are generally subject to the limits of the ...



H.R. 3978: TRID Improvement Act of 2017

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 17:04:00 -0500

Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 to provide a temporary license for loan originators transitioning between employers, and H.R. 4061, the Financial Stability Oversight Council Improvement Act of 2017. Specifically, the bill does the following: Title I: TRID Improvement (H.R. 3978) Title I amends the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 to direct the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) to require mortgage lenders to disclose in the closing documents for mortgages, the discounted rates given ...



On Motion to Recommit with Instructions: H.R. 3978: TRID Improvement Act of 2017

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 16:56:00 -0500

Vote: Failed 189/228



H.Res. 129: Calling on the Department of Defense, other elements of the Federal Government, and foreign governments to intensify efforts to investigate, recover, and identify all missing and unaccounted-for personnel of the United States.

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 14:05:00 -0500

Vote: Passed 411/0 H.Res. 129 calls on (1) the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency, other appropriate Federal entities, and foreign governments to resolutely continue to account for missing U.S. personnel from past wars and conflicts; and (2) calls on foreign governments to cooperate fully with the USG to provide the fullest possible accounting for those American lives, after factual recitations. Stemming from the fact that (1) more than 83,000 personnel of the United States are still unaccounted-for around the world from past wars and conflicts; (2) an estimated 50,000 of these World War II personnel were lost deep at sea and are unlikely ever to be recovered, thousands of families and friends have waited decades for the accounting of their loved ones and comrades ...



H.R. 3542: Hamas Human Shields Prevention Act

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 13:58:00 -0500

Vote: Passed 415/0 H.R. 3542 states that it is U.S. policy to: (1) condemn the use of human shields by Hamas as an act of terrorism and a violation of human rights and international humanitarian law, and (2) act against those engaging in or supporting the use of human shields. The President is urged to direct the U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations (U.N.) to use U.S. influence at the U.N. Security Council to secure support for a resolution imposing multilateral sanctions against Hamas's use of human shields. The President is required to prohibit property transactions and U.S. entry with respect to: (1) each foreign person or entity that is a member of or acting on behalf of Hamas and that is ...
