Scored vote

Scorecard: Club For Growth 2007 Senate Scorecard

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

Description:

"A vote to kill the DeMint amendment that would prevent some projects funded in this bill from complying with Davis-Bacon requirements. The pro-growth vote is "nay" because Davis-Bacon requires wages to be paid at a "prevailing" rate, which is almost always higher than the market rate. This forces taxpayers to pay more than is necessary. Passed 56-37."
