Welcome to the #Pennsylvania Member of Congress Tracking Report for the week ending 09/15/19. This is where you'll find all the votes and quotes from our 18 House members as well as @SenBobCasey and @SenToomey.
#MoCTrack 1/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey The folks at @538Politics have you covered if you want to assess what percentage of the time your MoC votes along with the Trump Administration’s agenda. And we collect all of that for our 20 PA MoCs all in one place for you.
#MoCTrack 2/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics The biggest vote this week saw the House choosing to protect #ANWR from energy exploitation!
#MoCTrack 3/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics That wasn’t the only drilling that the House opted to block. There were votes to stop a Trump plan to open up continental shelf and Gulf of Mexico waters to offshore drilling.
#MoCTrack 4/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics The House also took on another #ClimateCrisis concern by voting to reauthorize the Diesel Emissions Reduction Act, a successful program that has removed 61,500 tons of carbon monoxide from the atmosphere.
#MoCTrack 5/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics The last of the pro-governments votes in the House concerns a bill that will require the use of energy efficient and energy saving information and communication technologies and practices across the federal IT infrastructure.
#MoCTrack 6/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics The Senate was mostly concerned with confirmations this week. We have a new Commissioner on Children, Youth, and Families who refuses to reverse a policy of discrimination in who is permitted to adopt.
#MoCTrack 7/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics Our new Director of the Office of Personnel Mgmt has an awful management history, heading an office where she “oversaw declines in both the size of its workforce and its ability to serve as an independent arbiter of workplace disputes.”
#MoCTrack 8/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics And we have a new Member of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, who was confirmed to a 14 year term.
#MoCTrack 9/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics Things were actually better (‼️‼️) on the judicial front. Only the second African American woman nominated by the Trump Administration to serve in the federal judiciary was confirmed last week.
#MoCTrack 10/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics A judge who has co-authored a paper on cybersecurity measures, who has both the public and private sector experience was also confirmed (major downside – he’s a @FedSoc member).
#MoCTrack 11/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc And the last judge confirmed received UNANIMOUS support. And she’ll be serving here, in #Pennsylvania. And look, @SenToomey and @SenBobCasey issued a joint letter in support of her confirmation. #RARE
#MoCTrack 12/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc In the first of our Twitter action segments (not that you folks here need a recap, but still) we have a collection of #GunSense content from our MoCs.
#MoCTrack 13/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc Many of our MoCs both celebrated #VAWA25, but also pushed for the Senate to reauthorize #VAWA4ALL.
#MoCTrack 14/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc And @ElastigirlVotes selected our Tweets of the Week – she also did the previous Twitter sections, so join me in thanking her for her hard work!!
#MoCTrack 15/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes Now we have the “in the media” segment on @SenBobCasey, courtesy of volunteer Linda. Our senior senator was pretty quiet this week, with only a pair of quotes, one from the article below.
#MoCTrack 16/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes Contributor @Sites_Kathy covers @SenToomey for us, and she found that he mostly talked about #BackgroundChecks, like in this piece.
#MoCTrack 17/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes @sites_kathy @HouseJudiciary The @HouseHomeland did a hearing on “threats to the homeland” and this testimony from one of the witnesses, @proflevin,
We only wish some #Pennsylvania MoCs had participated in this hearing.
#MoCTrack 19/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes @sites_kathy @HouseJudiciary @HouseHomeland @proflevin @FSCDems @RepDean @RepMGS The @HouseSmallBiz held a hearing on “Growing the Clean Energy Economy” and #PA13’s @RepJohnJoyce turned it into a booster session for #Fracking.

Since when are fossil fuels 'clean energy', dude?
#MoCTrack 22/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes @sites_kathy @HouseJudiciary @HouseHomeland @proflevin @FSCDems @RepDean @RepMGS @HouseSmallBiz @RepJohnJoyce The @VetAffairsDems held an event where MoCs cold just make speeches. #PA11’s @RepSmucker called for passage of a bill to clear up health billing delays. Imagine getting a bill 5 years after receiving care… he says it happens.
#MoCTrack 23/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes @sites_kathy @HouseJudiciary @HouseHomeland @proflevin @FSCDems @RepDean @RepMGS @HouseSmallBiz @RepJohnJoyce @VetAffairsDems @RepSmucker Our environmental contributor, @andreawittchen of iSpring, is helping us understand @SenToomey’s obsession with removing #ethanol from our fuel mix. It’s super interesting!
#MoCTrack 24/26
@SenBobCasey @SenToomey @538politics @FedSoc @ElastigirlVotes @sites_kathy @HouseJudiciary @HouseHomeland @proflevin @FSCDems @RepDean @RepMGS @HouseSmallBiz @RepJohnJoyce @VetAffairsDems @RepSmucker @andreawittchen And for our call to action this week, we ask you to take 4 QUICK steps to make sure you are prepped for the coming #2019Election, with enough time left to do something if you need to re-register!
#MoCTrack 25/26
