Emmer voted  "Yea"     3/2/21     Bill Failed     207/218

H.R. 1280

George Floyd Justice in Policing Act of 2021       Emmer voted "Nay"  3/3/21         Passed  220/212

H.R. 1  For the people Act of 2021         Emmer voted "Nay"                   3/3/21         Passed   220/210

H.Res. 188   Providing for consideration of the bill (H.R. 842) to amend the National Labor Relations Act, the Labor Management Relations Act, 1947, and the Labor-Management Reporting and Disclosure Act of 1959, and for other purposes        Emmer voted Nay    3/8/21          Passed   218/197


H.R. 842   Protecting the Right to Organize Act of 2021   Emmer voted  Nay  3/9/21   Passed 226/206


H.R. 8    Bipartisan Background Checks Act of 2021                    Emmer voted Nay   3/11/21   Passed  227/203

H.R. 1446   Enhanced Background Checks Act of 2021   Emmer voted  Nay            3/11/21   Passed    219/210

*H.R. 803: Initially, when I read the summary it appeared to protect land and water. But then, I read it again. It appears to protect certain wilderness lands and gain water rights, not for Indigenous Peoples – in this case the Ute people (Colorado was bullied from them in “or else” deals with the U.S. government.) How do the Indigenous people feel about this legislation? More research in order, here. So, it remains to be seen if Rep. Emmer’s Nay vote was obstructionist.

Wild West Emmer votes No to responsible gun ownership.  

Women's safety, children's safety, family safety are not concerns. Safety of all of his constituents - not a concern. But, let there be guns as many as you want - no matter your record -  -- he will not object. That is not a responsible representation of all constituents in CD 6. 

Voted no to Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2021
