Recent House Votes

Water Resources Bill – Vote Passed (417-3, 10 Not Voting)

With the Senate out all week, the House held its final vote on Wednesday. The House approved with overwhelmingly bipartisan support the bill that would authorize Army Corps of Engineers water resource projects, including flood control and improvements to inland locks and dams. The Senate already passed its version of the bill (S. 601) in the middle of May. The measure would be the first enacted water resources bill since 2007 if soon-to-be-named Senate and House conferees can negotiate a unified bill.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa voted YES

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard voted YES
