House Members Hurried back To Washington to Approve Huge Emergency Bill by Voice Vote
Shortly before the House vote Friday approving the massive relief package in response to the corona-virus outbreak, Rep. Thomas Massie, R-Ky., said he planned to try to force a recorded vote on the legislation, arguing that House members should have to go on the record like the Senate did.
Massie's attempt to force a roll-call vote, however, was likely to be denied because House leaders believe there will be a quorum present, paving the way to pass the measure by voice vote. He later acknowledged on Twitter that his plan to force a vote would likely be blocked, as it was.
