Halvorson, Hare, Schock Votes – May 6

without comments

On Thursday, May 6 Halvorson and Hare in favor of the Home Star Energy Retrofit Act. Schock voted Nay.

The Bill passed 246-161, with 12 GOP voting yea and 7 Dems voting nay.

I haven’t checked but I assume all three local reps voted on Wednesday to support Mothers Day. No, seriously, there was an actual resolution passed to support Mothers Day. Talk about your profiles in courage…

Also on Wednesday, the House passed a resolution to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Kent State Massacre (referred to as ‘shootings’ in the resolution).

The final vote was 415 to 0 with 2 Republicans (neither of them Schock) voting present. All 3 Central Illinois reps voted yea.
