Scored vote

Scorecard: FreedomWorks 2007 House Votes

Org. position: {{{Vote position 1}}}

Description:

"This bill contains $43 billion in new funding over the next 3 years for at least 40 new federal programs. The scope of the funding for the bill after it emerged from conference dramatically inflated from the original House bill, which called for only $23 billion in funding for 20 new programs. It not only represents the reckless spending that has come to characterize Congress, but also is a drastic and irresponsible expansion of the size of government. “Nay” votes scored."

Scored vote

Scorecard: U.S. Chamber of Commerce 2007 House Scorecard

Org. position: Aye

Description:

"By a 367-57 vote, the House passed H.R. 2272, the America Creating Opportunities to Meaningfully Promote Excellence in Technology, Education, and Science Act. The Chamber strongly supported this legislation, which emphasizes more funding for math and science education and science focused research and development, allowing the United States to remain competitive. The legislation lays the foundation for significantly increased federal investment for math and science research and education by authorizing funding for numerous programs such as the National Science Foundation; the National Institute of Standards and Technology; the Technology Innovation Program; and a new cutting-edge energy research agency, the Advanced Research Projects Agency for Energy. If America is to remain competitive in the global, knowledge-based economy, it needs to restore excellence in math and science education and research. The COMPETES Act, which was signed into law on August 9, will do much to bolster these efforts."
