How did Sen. Brown vote on Continuing Resolutions?
SEN. BROWN VOTED RIGHT ON THE HOUSE AND SEATE VERSIONS OF THE CONTINUING RESOLUTION!
The senate just voted on House bill, H.R. 1, the long-term Continuing Resolution approved by the House in February that contains the Pence Amendment, reinstates the Mexico City Policy, stops abortion funding in the District of Columbia, and de-funds the UNFPA.The vote was 44-56.
After defeating the pro-life House bill, senators also defeated the Senate-sponsored long-term budget bill, which included none of the pro-life provisions, 42-58.
Senator Brown voted for the pro-life House version and against the anti-life Senate version.The votes were mostly along party lines, but some Republicans voted against us.
Please call in your thanks immediately!(202) 224-4543
It would have been wonderful to pass the House version, but it is very exciting for Sen. Brown to maintain his 100% pro-life voting record!
Thank you for all the work you have done on this!Anne
