WASHINGTON, DC – In a vote of 305 to 102, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 3401. Representative Rob Woodall supported the $4.6 billion emergency supplemental funding package, which will protect Americans at the southern border and provide critical humanitarian relief funding.

“I am glad to see Speaker Pelosi abandon partisan politics and her radical caucus and join House Republicans to finish the work done by the Senate to address the dire situation on our southern border. The bipartisan measure we passed will fund immigration judges and essential law enforcement personnel, along with housing, transportation, and medical care for migrants,” said Congressman Woodall. “When politics stops and governing begins, Congress can deliver results on behalf of the American people.”  

 

Background

  • On Wednesday, the Senate passed an amended version of H.R. 3401 and sent it back to the House for final consideration.
  • On Thursday, a group of moderate Democrats partnered with Republican lawmakers to urge Speaker Pelosi to consider the Senate’s bipartisan legislation.
  • After the bill passed the House, it was sent to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
  • Key provisions of the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations for Humanitarian Assistance and Security at the Southern Border Act can be found here.

 

Congressman Woodall represents the Seventh Congressional District of Georgia, which includes significant portions of Forsyth and Gwinnett counties. He currently serves on the Rules Committee, the Transportation & Infrastructure Committee, and the Budget Committee.
