Emergency Supplemental Disaster Relief Appropriations Resolution, 2011 - Vote Agreed to (62-37, 1 Not Voting)

The bill, later passed by unanimous consent, would provide $6.9 billion in immediate aid. The vote came after the Senate rejected two proposals to offset the cost of the funding.

Recent House Votes
Empowering Parents through Quality Charter Schools Act - Vote Passed (365-54, 12 Not Voting)

The House passed this bill to expand successful charter school programs, the first part of an effort to overhaul and reauthorize the No Child Left Behind Act. The Senate is likely to consider charter school legislation as part of a broader reauthorization of No Child Left Behind rather than as a stand-alone bill.

Protecting Jobs From Government Interference Act - Vote Passed (238-186, 9 Not Voting)
