House Democrats (Almost) Unanimously Voted for H.R.1 — But These Votes were Contentious.

  • Jake Auchincloss, Jamaal Bowman, Sara Jacobs, Mondaire Jones, Kai Kahele, Teresa Leger Fernandez, Ritchie Torres, and Nikema Williams all replaced Democrats who had also voted for the amendment.
  • Marie Newman and Marilyn Strickland replaced Democrats who had voted against the amendment, and Cori Bush’s predecessor had been absent.
  • Supporters Abby Finkenauer, Katie Hill, Kendra Horn, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, Max Rose, Harley Rouda, and Donna Shalala have been replaced by Republicans.
  • Delegates Eleanor Holmes Norton (DC), Stacey Plaskett (VI), and Gregorio Sablan (NMI) voted in 2019 but did not vote this time.
  • Emanuel Cleaver, Jim Cooper, Lois Frankel, Chuy Garcia, Jared Golden, Andy Kim, Jimmy Panetta, Bill Pascrell, Dean Phillips, Mike Quigley, Bonnie Watson Coleman, and Frederica Wilson went from NO to YES. Jimmy Gomez went from absent to YES.
  • Sanford Bishop, Marcia Fudge, Hank Johnson, Cedric Richmond, and Abigail Spanberger went from YES to NO, and Steven Horsford — who had been a YES — was absent.
