(H. Con. Res 257) On passage of a resolution allowing the Senate to take its traditional Easter recess
senate Roll Call 108     Mar 25, 2010
Progressive Position:
Yea
Progressive Result:
Win

This was a vote on a resolution allowing the Senate to take its traditional Easter recess. There was no debate on the adjournment resolution. Republicans, however, sought to protest Democratic efforts to extend unemployment insurance and health insurance for laid-off workers without offsetting the budgetary cost of those extensions with spending cuts. Earlier in the day, Republicans had attempted to bring a up a bill that would have extended those programs but cut funding from the economic stimulus legislation signed into law by President Obama in 2009 in response to the economic crisis. Democrats successfully blocked debate on that bill.

The Senate passed its adjournment resolution by a vote of 49-39. 49 Democrats present voted “yea.” All 35 Republicans present and 4 Democrats voted “nay.” As a result, the Senate passed a resolution allowing the chamber to take its traditional Easter recess.
