Key Vote Alert – NDAA Amendments



NDAA Amendments (HR 5515)

The Club for Growth does not take a position on final passage of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2019. However, there are a few amendments that have a material influence on economic policy that the Club will score. These amendments will be voted on this week. The votes will be included in the Club’s 2018 congressional scorecard.

YES on King #92 – This amendment would ensure that no funds are authorized to enforce Davis-Bacon wage requirements.

NO on McKinley #422 – This amendment would require 100% domestic sourcing for “dinnerware” within the Department of Defense. It is essentially a protectionist earmark. It is meant to exclude foreign competition while favoring a specific industry. The government should not pick winners and losers.

NO on Tenney #380 – This amendment is similar to McKinley #422, but it applies to stainless steel flatware.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th 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.
