TO MODIFY THE UDALL SUBSTITUTE AMENDMENT FOR THE COLLINS AMENDMENT TO H.R. 11280. THE ERLENBORN AMENDMENT PROHIBITS EMPLOYEES OF THE FEDERAL ELECTION COMMISSION FROM BEING REPRESENTED BY A UNION THAT MAINTAINS A POLITICAL ACTION COMMITTEE OR THAT ADVOCATES ELECTION OR DEFEAT OF ANY CANDIDATE FOR FEDERAL OFFICE. THE UDALL SUBSTITUTE AMENDMENT COMPROMISES THE BILL'S LANGUAGE AND THE ADMINISTRATION'S PROPOSALS FOR THE LABOR MANAGEMENT PROVISIONS OF THE BILL. THE COLLINS AMENDMENT EMBODIES THE ADMINISTRATION'S PROPOSALS AND GIVES BASIC COLLECTIVE BARGAINING RIGHTS TO FEDERAL EMPLOYEES ON ISSUES OF PERSONNEL POLICIES AND WORKING CONDITIONS.

This vote was related to a bill introduced by Rep. Robert Nix [D-PA2, 1963-1978] on March 3, 1978, H.R. 11280 (95th): Civil Service Reform Act.

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.
