Recent House Votes
Military Death Benefits – Continuing Resolution - Vote Passed (425-0, 6 Not Voting)

Last Wednesday, the House passed a joint resolution that provides sums as necessary to pay for U.S. military death benefits. It includes the $100,000 death gratuity, funeral and burial expenses, and a housing allowance for dependents of service members who die on active duty. The funds would be available through Dec. 15, 2013. The motion passed without a dissenting vote in the House. On Thursday, the Senate passed the legislation by unanimous consent, and President Obama signed it later the same day.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted 
Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted YES

Upcoming Votes
Debt Limit - S.1569

The Senate is likely to vote on this bill to suspend enforcement of the debt ceiling. It’s possible the Senate could vote on legislation that would both fund the government and raise or suspend the debt limit.

Debt Limit and Government Funding - H.R.____

The House may take up its own bill to address both the debt limit issue and funding the federal government or Senate legislation that would do so. Until then the House is expected to continue voting on “mini CRs” funding intelligence agencies, American Indian and Alaska Native social and education programs, and weather forecasting.
