McMorris Rodgers Substitute Amendment to the Violence Against Women Acy
On Agreeing to the Amendment
House Roll Call No. 54
113rd Congress, 1st Session

Failed: 166-257 (see complete tally)
On February 28, 2013, the House rejected a substitute amendment offered by Rep. McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) to the Violence Against Women Act (S.47) by a vote of 166-257.  The ACLU opposed the substitute amendment because it omitted protections for LGBT individuals, and Native American and immigrant survivors of domestic violence, housing protections aimed at preventing homelessness, as well as nondiscrimination protections for individuals employed by taxpayer-funded programs.  The amendment would have also expanded existing cyber-stalking laws, threatening First Amendment rights.
