Objecting to the United Nations Security Council Resolution Vote 2334 Concerning Israeli-Palestinian Peace
Vote Passed (342-80, 4 Present, 7 Not Voting)

The House agreed to this resolution which would express the sense of the House that the adoption of United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334, which criticized Israel for its continued expansion of settlements in occupied territories, and which the United States abstained from vetoing in the Security Council, undermined the long-standing position of the United States to oppose and veto U.N. Security Council resolutions that seek to impose solutions to Israeli-Palestinian final status issues, or that are one-sided and anti-Israel.

Private Market Investors
Vote Passed (344-73, 17 Not Voting)

Regulatory Accountability
Vote Passed (238-183, 13 Not Voting)

The bill would modify the federal rule-making process with a focus on reducing the possible economic costs of federal regulations, allowing more legal challenges to rules and increasing transparency. Among its provisions, it would require agencies to estimate the cost of proposed regulations and consider lower-cost alternatives, creating additional steps that agencies must follow when proposing “major” or “high impact” rules, including an opportunity for the public to challenge agency justifications and findings. It also automatically would postpone the implementation of new federal rules costing $1 billion or more until all legal challenges are resolved, and it effectively would overturn two Supreme Court decisions that require courts to give substantial deference to an agency’s interpretation of a rule or underlying law.

Rep. John Faso voted YES

Among its provisions, it would ease certain regulatory requirements to ensure that some “end users” of derivatives are not regulated as swaps dealers, require the CFTC to conduct cost-benefit analyses of its proposed rules and allow for the development of rules regarding the interaction of U.S. swaps rules to international requirements.
