Recent Senate Votes

Oil and Gas Royalties - Vote Rejected (51-47, 2 Not Voting)

The Senate voted on the McConnell motion to invoke cloture on the motion to proceed to the bill that would establish revenue sharing for states involved in energy production from onshore and offshore areas leased by the government. It also would incorporate revenues generated by offshore wind energy production projects. Sixty votes were needed to invoke cloture and end debate.

Sen. Brian Schatz voted NO
Sen. Mazie Hirono voted NO


Recent House Votes

"Midnight" Rules - Vote Passed (240-179, 15 Not Voting)

The bill would permit a new Congress to use the procedures under the Congressional Review Act to disapprove, en bloc, multiple regulations issued by a president in his final year in office rather than just a single regulation at a time for rules issued during the final 60 session days of the previous Congress.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted NO


Iranian Aircraft Purchases - Vote Passed (243-174, 17 Not Voting)

The measure, which combines two separately reported bills, would prohibit the Export-Import Bank from providing any export financing that would benefit the government of Iran or Iranian entities, and it would prohibit the Treasury Department from authorizing transactions by U.S. financial institutions to finance the export or re-export of commercial passenger aircraft to Iran. Under the measure, any prior Treasury authorizations for U.S. financing of commercial aircraft sales to Iran would be retroactively revoked.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted NO
