LLPH added some points to legislators who voted correctly on particular suspensions and other significant legislation. 10 Leadership Points earned will get a legislator 1 Extra Credit point in our 100 point Congressional Scorecard. 

H.R. 4292: Foreign Cultural Exchange Jurisdictional Immunity Clarification Act (http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2014/roll194.xml)

Why LLPH opposed this bill and gave 1 LP for no votes: (Thanks to Rep. Sanford for an excellent explanation).

“There was an interesting bill about stolen art on the House floor Tuesday night that I voted against, but the story here isn’t about thieves or museums – it’s about the power of the executive branch. HR 4292 would have made it easier for the President to block individuals from attempting to recover stolen art, and as valuable as it is to view art from different pieces of the world, the idea of private property rights and ownership are even more fundamental to a market based economy. The President’s ability to do this was originally intended to promote the free flow of art between countries and encourage other countries to share their collections without fear that it wouldn’t be returned. So as I just suggested, there’s certainly an interesting conversation to be had here about property rights, but my overriding problem with this bill is how it expanded executive prerogative to limit the liberty of US citizens. It’s a non-controversial bill that passed 388-4, but I think the important point is that it takes a little bit of power away from people and gives it to the government. Those little steps toward or against private property rights or decisions being made by the individual rather than government represent a larger tide on where liberty stands – and that’s why I ultimately chose to oppose this bill.” —Rep. Mark Sanford (R-SC 1)

H.R. 10: Success and Opportunity through Quality Charter Schools Act 

A series of three amendments which increased the federal government’s role in charter schools and education were scored in our scorecard as if they were one vote. For a legislator to receive the 5 points, he/she had to vote against AT LEAST 1 of these amendments. We are also awarding 1 LP for each amendment the legislator voted against. Unfortunately, all 3 big government amendments passed as RINOs and liberal Democrats joined together to pass these amendments. 

Wilson of FL amendment: http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2014/roll214.xmlAn amendment numbered 9 printed in House Report 113-444 to ensure collection and public dissemination of information that will help parents make informed decisions about education options for their children.
