We have a first this week on Bryan Watch. Representative Steil’s first extreme vote, Roll Call #232 (June 3). Steil was one of 58 Republicans to vote against HR 2157, the supplemental appropriations bill for FY 2019. The bill would provide $17 billion in relief for victims of hurricanes in the Carolinas and Georgia, typhoons in the Pacific, and flooding in the Midwest.
This was a big week for Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI 1). He was the leader of the fight against the Consumers First Act, and the House voted on his very first amendment to a bill and on his first motion to recommit.
There were two major issues this week in the House: Equality for LGBTQ citizens, and expanding access to health care.
Time once again for a weekend wrap-up on what the House of Representatives, and specifically Rep. Bryan Steil (R-WI 1) has been up to. Short answer: Voting like a typical Republican.
