How They Voted

From the comments, Dave asked how to find the roll call vote on S.1580 of 2003 and S.190 of 2005. I'm putting this up top because it's a great link for finding such information. Keep in mind that a bill may not have been voted on in the year it was first proposed.

Also, the informational link for each bill will list "Major Congressional Actions," which will then link to the numbered roll call vote for that bill if there is one.

Sadly, I think that both of the GSE bills were referred to committee, where they died. As for villains, I suspect Democrats and Republicans.

To find committee reports, amendments, and related information, search the Thomas site with the format "S.NNNN" or "H.R.NNNN" and the year.
