On Motion to Recommit with Instructions: H.R. 268: Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2019

Failed 193/231

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: No

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: No

This was an attempt by House Republicans to block part of House Democrats’ funding proposal, H.R. 268, which would provide funding for emergency disaster relief and reopened the agencies whose funding lapsed at the start of the partial government shutdown until February 8, 2019. This vote was to remove the part of the bill that would have temporarily reopened federal agencies (a so called “continuing resolution”), leaving only the part that would have provided emergency disaster relief (House Clerk, 5:31:39 P.M.)

An “aye” vote was a vote to strike the continuing resolution from the bill and only include disaster relief funding. A “no” vote was a vote to proceed to a vote on the original bill ...

H.R. 268: Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2019

Passed 237/187

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Yea

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Yea

This bill was one of many attempts by House Democrats to end the partial government shutdown without funding for a southern border wall. The bill would provide funding for emergency disaster relief for the rest of fiscal year 2019 (through September), in addition to reopening the agencies whose funding lapsed at the start of the partial government shutdown until February 8, 2019 (a so called “continuing resolution”).

House Democrats issued a press release on passage of the bill. The release explains the rationale for the bill and the proposed distribution of $14.17 billion in emergency disaster relief funding.

On December 22, 2018 the 115th Congress was unable to reach a deal to fund some federal agencies through fiscal year ...

Failed 195/222

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Nay

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Nay

This was an attempt by House Republicans to kill H.J.Res. 28, a House Democrat bill to reopen the federal government until February 28, 2019. This vote was to replace the date in the bill “February 28, 2019” with “January 15, 2019”. (House Clerk, 11:17:34 A.M.) Since the vote was taken on January 17, 2019, agencies would not have been reopened but the delayed paychecks to furloughed and essential federal employees could have been sent out.

An “aye” vote was a vote to kill the original bill and instead allow paychecks to furloughed and essential federal employees to be sent out without reopening any agencies. A “no” vote was a vote to proceed to a vote ...

"The President shall not withdraw support from NATO."

This was a vote on a House bill to prevent President Trump from withdrawing the United States from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, or NATO. The legislation was passed in response to reports that the President had proposed withdrawing from the alliance of western nations.

From their website: "NATO promotes democratic values and enables members to consult and cooperate on defence and security-related issues to solve problems, build trust and, in the long run, prevent conflict."

H.J.Res. 28: Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019

Passed 229/184

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Yea

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Yea

This was one of House Democrats’ attempts to reopen the government. It is a continuing resolution to reopen the agencies whose funding lapsed at the start of the partial government shutdown until February 28, 2019. The resolution would extend the deadline of the previous funding bill.

On December 22, 2018 the 115th Congress was unable to reach a deal to fund some federal agencies through fiscal year 2019 after President Trump demanded $5 billion in funding for a southern border wall. The Senate had unanimously passed a bill to fund the government through 2019, without the border wall, the then Republican-controlled House amended the bill adding $5 billion in funding for a southern border wall. The Senate neglected to vote ...

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Nay

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Nay

This was an attempt by House Republicans to kill H.R. 648, House Democrats’ bill to reopen most of the federal government. This vote was to replace the text of the bill with new text to pay employees furloughed during the shutdown. (House Clerk, 3:08:25 P.M.) This would have replaced all the text from the House Democrats’ version of the bill.

H.R. 648: Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2019

Passed 234/180

Rep. Case [D-HI1]: Yea

Rep. Gabbard [D-HI2]: Yea

This was a House Democrat bill to reopen most of the federal government through September 30, 2019, with funding for most or all of the federal agencies that had been shut down except for the Department of Homeland Security. The bill was written using text from bills previously negotiated during the Republican-controlled 115th Congress, with adjustments from House Democrats. It would not have included funding for a southern border wall.

House Democrats issued a press release on passage of H.R. 648. The release explains the rationale for the bill and some of the adjustments made.

Sen. Schatz [D-HI]: Nay

This was a vote on Senate Republicans’ proposal to fund certain federal agencies through September 30, 2019 and to reopen the agencies whose funding lapsed at the start of the partial government shutdown until February 8, 2019. The proposal was one of two Senate amendments that would have replaced the text of the House funding proposal H.R. 268. It would have included $5.7 billion in funding for a southern border wall and increase restrictions on asylum-seekers attempting to enter the United States.

The Washington Post wrote about the two amendments two days before they were both rejected. The full text of the amendment can be found at the top of this page.
