H.R. 1261. Job Training Reauthorization/Vote to Recommit to Committee a Bill to Provide Federal Assistance for Job Training Programs and Allow Providers of Job Training to Discriminate By Using an Individual's Religion as a Factor in Hiring Decisions.
house Roll Call 174     May 08, 2003
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Loss

House rules allow the minority party to offer a motion to recommit legislation for further committee consideration which, if passed, is usually a death blow to the bill. Congressman Miller (D-CA) offered the recommit motion on the job training reauthorization bill with instructions that the House Education and Workforce Committee (the committee which developed the legislation) add an amendment which would have provided unemployed workers an additional 26 weeks of income support and extended the eligibility of workers who have exhausted their federal extended unemployment benefits by 13 weeks. Progressives supported the committee instructions contained in the recommit motion as a way to insure that unemployed workers are able to provide for their families during the period in which they are searching for a new job. The motion to recommit the bill with instructions was defeated on a 202-223 vote.
