Hoeven Cosponsors No Hearing, No Vote Bill to Stop Democrats' $3.5 Trillion Tax and Spend Bill
WASHINGTON – Senator John Hoeven, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, today joined Senators Mike Braun (R-Ind.), Richard Burr (R-N.C.) and Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) in introducing No Hearing, No Vote legislation. The legislation requires reconciliation bills, like the Democrats’ $3.5 trillion spending bill, to receive a full committee hearing before votes can occur on the Senate floor.
“Democrats are attempting to ram through $3.5 trillion in spending using the budget reconciliation process,” said Hoeven. “The No Hearing, No Vote bill is an effort to stop this massive tax-and-spend legislation by requiring that any reconciliation bill have hearings before any floor votes.”
In addition to Hoeven, Braun, Burr and Inhofe, the legislation was introduced by Senators Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.), John Barrasso (R-Wyo.), Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), Bill Hagerty (R-Tenn.), James Lankford (R-Okla.), Jim Risch (R-Idaho), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Rick Scott (R-Fla.).
