Didn't understand why the voting lasted more than the allocated 15 mins.

And why did it require 2/3 majority for it to pass? I thought simple majority is all we needed. Will we required 2/3 majority in senate as well? I think key now is that it comes to senate floor for voting.

Congrats to IV Leadership and dedicated Members
 
Kudos to IV Leadership !

Amazing to hear Rep.Chaffetz specifically mention IV in his speech !

This is a big testament for all the people on the fence to appreciate and participate in IV's efforts.

I urge all the non-donor members to contribute to the efforts.


Kudos to IV core again !

This is a first
 
I have never seen ANY immigration bill passed in House with this much majority. That shows the strategic brilliance involved behind this bill. And it is very clear how much effort IV core put in behind the conception and advocacy for this bill. It is a big deal for IV to be specifically mentioned by Rep.Chaffetz, in his speech, as one of the orgs who supported and worked for this bill! Kudos to IV again...this is one super achievement! And getting such a bill passed does not mean working with just a few lawmakers..it means working consistently with all offices on Capitol Hill. Thanks to IV and hope more member are now encouraged to participate in grass-roots efforts (similar to the phone campaign).
