House Amends and Passes HR 8

This morning the House passed HR 8 by a mainly party-line vote of 249 to 174. The House concluded their consideration of the 35 amendments to the bill before the vote. All four of the amendments I discussed Tuesday passed by voice votes yesterday.

With a Presidential veto promised if this bill passes a Senate vote today’s vote did not indicate that there was anywhere near enough support for this bill to overcome a veto if the bill were passed in the Senate. It is unlikely, however, that this bill will be considered in the Senate with the solid Democratic opposition to the bill.
