Recent House Votes
The HAMP Termination Act of 2011 - Vote Passed (252-170, 1 Present, 9 Not Voting)

The House voted to end the Home Affordable Modification Program, a home foreclosure prevention program that uses Troubled Asset Relief Program money to help homeowners modify their mortgages. The Senate is unlikely to take up the bill.

Rep. Mazie Hirono voted NO

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO


Scholarships for Opportunity and Results Act - Vote Passed (225-195, 12 Not Voting)

The House voted to revive a voucher program that would help low-income Washington D.C. residents send their children to private schools. The bill faces an uncertain future but could be attached to the 2011 spending bill currently being negotiated between the House and Senate.

Rep. Mazie Hirono voted NO

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO



Government Shutdown Prevention Act - Vote Passed (221-202, 1 Present, 8 Not Voting)

This bill would declare the House-passed spending bill, H.R.1, to be enacted if the Senate does not pass a FY2011 spending bill by April 6. Supporters say the vote highlights the Senate's inability to pass a budget, while opponents say the bill is unconstitutional.

Rep. Mazie Hirono voted NO

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO



FAA Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2011 - Vote Passed (223-196, 13 Not Voting)

The House passed this bill reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration for four-years. The Senate passed a two-year bill in February. The two chambers will now work out a compromise bill.

Rep. Mazie Hirono voted NO

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted NO

Upcoming Votes
Repeal of 1099 tax reporting rule - H.R.4

The Senate is scheduled to take up this bill that would repeal a tax reporting provision in the healthcare overhaul law that affects business and real estate owners.



Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011 - H.R.910

The House is scheduled to vote on this bill that would prohibit the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gas emissions.



Net neutrality rule disapproval - H.J.RES.37

This House resolution would overturn a Federal Communications Commission rule regarding "net neutrality."
