Key Vote NO on H.Res. 796 and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to vote NO on H.Res. 796 and the Consolidated Appropriations Act, H.R. 1625. H.Res. 796 is the rule governing the Consolidated Appropriations Act. The underlying bill is a consolidated appropriations bill packed with unrelated legislative items that Congress has not been able to pass. We oppose the rule governing the underlying bill because of process by which leadership wrote the bill. We oppose the omnibus both because of the process and because it appropriates at the spending levels under the Bipartisan Budget Act.

Bad Process, Bad Budget Deal Cast a Dark Cloud Over $1.3 Trillion Spending Bill

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) told reporters earlier today that the government spending bill will be released late Tuesday evening, likely right before midnight. The House will vote on Thursday. The Senate will follow. As long as the bill isn't amended, the bill will subsequently go to the president's desk. But the process has cast a dark cloud for this spending bill. And the $1.3 trillion at which Congress will appropriate is also a reminder of a bad budget deal Congress recently passed.

USDA Signals SNAP Reform

Congress created the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) to reduce food insecurity among impoverished Americans. At the same time, Congress recognized that welfare programs must foster self-sufficiency. The Trump administration is looking for innovative solutions that improve both goals.

Key Vote YES on the Yemen War Powers Resolution, S.J.Res. 54

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your Senators and ask them to vote YES on the Yemen War Powers Resolution, S.J.Res. 54. The resolution would simply reclaim Congress’ rightful and required Article I powers by mandating the removal of unauthorized U.S. armed forces from hostilities in or affecting the Republic of Yemen not later than 30 days after the adoption of the resolution, absent a declaration of war or specific authorization for engagement in such activities.

Support the Education Savings Accounts for Military Families Act, H.R. 5199

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your representative and ask him or her to support the Education Savings Accounts for Military Families Act, H.R. 5199, introduced by Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.). The bill would give military families the option of opening an education savings account (ESA) for military-dependent students, advancing school choice and ensuring that poor educational options are not a deterrent for service members either prior to joining or upon being given a new posting.
