The U.S. House of Representatives today passed the Welfare Transparency Amendment sponsored by Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH). The amendment, which was offered to the Accelerating Individuals Into the Workplace Act (H.R. 2842), will direct states to collect and report data on the use of welfare benefits by individuals. “Despite spending trillions of dollars in the war on poverty, poverty rates are stagnant. One reason is because we are not tracking what works and what doesn't,” said Davidson. “This amendment will give us important data so that we can help break the cycle of poverty and get welfare recipients financially independent from government.”

Rep. Warren Davidson (R-OH) today introduced the Fair Representation Amendment. This proposed constitutional amendment would end the practice of counting non-citizens for electoral maps. If enacted, the number of representatives and electoral votes per state would reflect citizens rather than total population. Currently, the federal government allocates Congressional seats, as well as Electoral College votes, based on a state’s total number of “persons,” including non-citizens and illegal aliens. As a result, states that refuse to enforce immigration law, and thus have an inflated number of “persons,” are unjustly rewarded with more representatives in Congress and more clout in presidential elections than they would if only citizens were counted.
