HR. 10660. HIGHWAY CONSTRUCTION ACT. MOTION TO TABLE MOVE TO RECONSIDER CQ 74.

Congress
84th Congress
Date
May 29, 1956
Chamber
Senate
Number
#162
Result:
Adopted

From October 2014 through July 2015, we displayed incorrect vote totals for some historical votes. Although the total correctly reflected the announced positions of Members of Congress, the totals incorrectly included “paired” votes, which is when two Members of Congress, one planning to vote in favor and the other against, plan ahead of time to both abstain. The totals now omit paired votes and now more closely reflect the official totals.
