Not Allowing Tax Increase to be Snuck Through Informal Session House #15

Vote Description

This was a vote on amendment #25 to H.2019, the House Rules. This amendment would prohibit new taxes from being snuck through the House in an informal session. Informal sessions are scarcely attended and meant to move uncontroversial house-keeping measures through the House. However, they have been used to sneak through larger pieces of legislation as a way to avoid public input.
