Keeping Track

We are living in times that "try men's souls"

Events that are changing the landscape of our country are occurring at breakneck speed. In Congress bills are being passed at that same speed and as we have seen with the so-called Stimulus bill, WITHOUT even being read.

I encourage you to keep track of these Bills and how your Rep is voting on them. You may be surprised to find out how your Rep is voting!

Roll Calls for all Bills that have been voted on in the House can be found HERE

For Example
the Roll Call for the so-called Stimulus Bill is HERE

Roll Call for all bills that have been voted on in the Senate can be found HERE

For Example

1. U.S. Senate Roll Call (of all) Votes 111th Congress - 1st Session (2009) HERE

2 . Then click on the Bill that you want to know how your Senator voted on, in this example I will use the Ombinus Bill (Stimulus) H.R. 146 as Amended; Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009

3. Clicking on H.R 146 takes you to information about the Bill Click on "All Congressional Actions" Scrolling down takes you to the final action, the vote called the Record Vote Number.

4. Clicking on Record Vote Number , takes you to the tally of how every Senator voted

Both Michigan Senators voted for the Ombinus Bill (so called Stimulus) H.R. 146

Levin (D-MI), Yea
Stabenow (D-MI), Yea
