February 3, 2014

In this MegaVote for Hawaii's 1st & 2nd Congressional Districts:

Recent Congressional Votes

  • House: Federal Abortion Funding – Passage
  • House: Farm Programs Conference Report – Passage

Upcoming Congressional Bills

  • Senate: Farm Programs Conference Report
  • House: GI Bill Tuition Fairness Act

Recent Senate Votes
Federal Flood Insurance Premiums – Passage - Vote Passed (67-32, 1 Not Voting)

Senators on Thursday voted to delay increases to premiums billed by the National Flood Insurance Program until after the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) completes a study on flood insurance affordability. The bill would require FEMA to certify its flood mapping approach before certain rate changes are made and would allow insurance agents and brokers to sell insurance in multiple states without additional licensing.

Sen. Brian Schatz voted YES
Sen. Mazie Hirono voted YES

Recent House Votes
Federal Abortion Funding – Passage - Vote Passed (227-188, 1 Present, 15 Not Voting)

On Tuesday, House members passed a bill that would permanently prohibit the use of federal funds, facilities, or staff to provide abortion services, except in cases of rape or incest and for saving the life of the mother. The District of Columbia would also be prohibited from using local funds for covering abortion procedures.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted NO

Farm Programs Conference Report – Passage - Vote Passed (251-166, 14 Not Voting)

The House voted to adopt the conference report on the five-year agricultural and nutritional programs bill on Wednesday, bringing to a close a six-month standoff between it and the Senate. The compromise conference report bridged differences between the chambers on Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program funding levels and direct payments to farm owners, the two most contentious issues holding up the bill’s final passage. The conference report cuts SNAP benefits by $8 billion over 10 years and replaces direct payment programs with new subsidy and crop insurance programs to cover farm revenue losses.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted YES
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted YES

Upcoming Votes
Farm Programs Conference Report - HR2642

Senators will consider the conference report to accompany the farm bill on Monday.

GI Bill Tuition Fairness Act - HR357

On Monday, the House will consider a bill allowing veterans attending state-supported colleges and universities to pay in-state tuition regardless of their original state of residency.
