House Fails to Pass Vindictive Bill Targeting Federal Employees

On Wednesday, as expected, the House of Representatives took up H.R. 1563 for consideration under a procedure called “suspension of the rules,” which required a two-thirds majority of the House for passage.

The bill did manage to get a simple majority of 266-160. But since it needed 18 more votes to get to that two-thirds goal, it failed to pass.

Thank you for taking the time to contact your representative about this needless and vindictive measure.
