KEY VOTE ALERT
“NO” ON THE HIGHWAY/STUDENT LOAN BILL
Judging from news reports, it appears that leadership in both chambers plans to airdrop the student loan bill (and possibly the flood insurance bill) into the Highway bill conference report. A vote could happen in the next couple of days.
The Club urges all members of Congress to vote against this bill. This will be a key vote on the Club’s 2012 congressional scorecard. We have already key-voted previous versions of the highway bill (House alert | Senate alert) and the student loan bill (House alert | Senate alert).
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.
