INDIANA HOUSE VOTING RECORDS


The House voting records are a little more complicated, with more votes and more issues.  Below are the voting records of Indiana's House members, using ten key votes taken by the House of Representatives in recent months.  Again, the measure is this...did the House member vote in your interest as a federal employee?  That's the only measure NTEU's Legislative Department used in coming up with these voting records.  If you want more details on the precise votes involved, contact any NTEU steward.


As you can see below, 2 House members from the Hoosier state had 100% voting records in siding with the interests of federal workers, while 4 members had 0% voting records in siding with your interests.  Others sided with you 1 or 2 votes out of 10.




1 Visclosky (D) 100%

2 Walorski (R) 10%

3 Stutzman (R) 0%
