Open Thread and WVR - March 9th
I'm going to try something new this week, after a comment on a previous post. This is a small blog, and it hardly seems worthy of the "open threads" that Daily Kos and Eschaton have, but I'm curious to see what kind of comments I get. Below, all non-procedural votes from this week. Feel free to comment on them, Walberg, or anything else.
Here are the recorded votes cast by Congressman Tim Walberg (R-Tipton), March 5th through 9th. Certain procedural votes have been omitted. No votes listed below were considered significant by the Washington Post Votes Database.
- HR 995: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "To amend Public Law 106-348 to extend the authorization for establishing a memorial in the District of Columbia or its environs to honor veterans who became disabled while serving in the Armed Forces of the United States." Passed, 390-0.
- HR 497: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "To authorize the Marion Park Project, a committee of the Palmetto Conservation Foundation, to establish a commemorative work on Federal land in the District of Columbia, and its environs to honor Brigadier General Francis Marion." (Note: Does not allocate federal funds.) Passed, 390-0.
- H. Res. 98: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "Honoring the Life and Achievements of the Late Dr. John Garang De Mabior." Passed, 410-1.
- H. Res. 149: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "Supporting the Goals of International Women’S Day." Passed, 403-0.
- H. Amdt. 25 to HR 569: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "An amendment... to add a new section to the bill requiring offsets." Failed, 166-260.
- HR 569: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "To amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to authorize appropriations for sewer overflow control grants." Passed, 367-58.
- HR 710: Walberg voted Yes. Description: The Charlie W. Norwood Living Organ Donation Act; "To amend the National Organ Transplant Act to provide that criminal penalties do not apply to paired donations of human kidneys, and for other purposes." Passed, 422-0.
- H. Amdt. 30 to HR 700: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "An amendment... to add a new section at the end of the bill to require offsets." Failed, 176-256.
- HR 700: Walberg voted Yes. Description: "To Amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to Extend the Pilot Program for Alternative Water Source Projects." Passed, 368-59.
- H. Res. 202: Walberg voted No. Description: "Providing for the expenses of certain committees of the House of Representatives in the One Hundred Tenth Congress." Passed, 269-150.
- Baker Amendment to HR 720: Walberg voted Yes. Description: Unavailable. Thomas doesn't list amendments for HR 720. Vote was today, March 9th, so it may appear this weekend as they update their database. Failed, 140-280.
- HR 720: Walberg voted No. Description: Water Quality Financing Act of 2007; "To amend the Federal Water Pollution Control Act to authorize appropriations for State water pollution control revolving funds, and for other purposes." Passed, 303-108.
Does this prove everything you've thought and said about Walberg? Or does it change your perception of the congressman? Or, does it merely change your perception of what Congress does with its time?
I might share my own thoughts later, but right now, all I can think is: that was an awful lot to type in.
Consider this an open thread.
