On Approving the Journal

This was a procedural vote. The House is required to approve its previous day’s journal of activities each day. But a roll call vote on approving the journal is often used by the majority party to get representatives to the floor or to conduct an informal tally about their position on another matter. That other matter is not made known to the general public.
