The Obama administration has threatened a veto of the bill, which now goes to the Senate. But it picked up support from all 239 Republicans who voted and 28 Democrats … The legislation (HR 3442), sponsored by Rep. Kenny Marchant, R-Texas, would require the secretary to come before the Ways and Means Committee when the nation approaches the debt limit and present a report to Congress on the state of the public debt … The proposal also would require the secretary to outline the president's plans to reduce the debt and prepare a subsequent progress report. All the information would be posted publicly on the Treasury's website.” [Congressional Quarterly News, 2/11/16] Voted Against Requiring Treasury Secretary’s Report To Include Information On Salary, Wages, And Impact Of Spending Cuts On Gross Domestic Product Voted Against Requiring Treasury Secretary’s Report To Include Information On Salary, Wages, And Impact Of Spending Cuts On Gross Domestic Product.

The amendment requires “the Secretary of the Treasury to notify Congress whether it is able to pay only principal and interest on the national debt, as opposed to other obligations, in the event that the debt limit is reached.” The amendment passed 240 to 176.

In blocking the FY2016 legislative branch budget, Hurd voted to freeze his own pay. Though Hurd rejected an invitation to join the Congressional Black Caucus, while Republican colleague Mia Love joined it, Hurd joined and co-chairs the bi-partisan Congressional Future Caucus, a caucus for members under the age of 45 dedicated to finding pragmatic solutions.

Voted For Limiting Power Of OCE And House Ethics In Investigating Members

Voted For Limiting Power Of OCE And House Ethics In Investigating Members. In January 2015, Hurd voted for a House Rules package that contained a rules change that would help members under ethics investigations by the Office of Congressional Ethics and House Ethics Committee. “In one of its first actions of the new year, the House of Representatives on Tuesday approved rules changes that could give lawmakers a new defense against ethics investigations. The new language, added Monday night to the sections that establish the House Ethics Committee and the independent Office of Congressional Ethics, says the two bodies ‘may not take any action that would deny any person any right or protection provided under the Constitution of the United States.’ The language also states that a person subject to a review by the Office of Congressional Ethics ‘shall be informed of the right to be represented by counsel and invoking that right should not be held negatively against them.’ … ‘Clearly (the new language) was put in there to allow members of Congress to restrain certain activities of the ethics committees based on their own interpretation of what the Constitution means,’ said Craig Holman of the watchdog group Public Citizen.” The resolution passed, 234-172. [H Res 5, Vote #6, 1/06/15; USA Today, 1/06/15]

[H Res 38, Vote #38, 1/21/15; Democratic Leader – Previous Questions, 1/21/15]

Voted For FY16 Legislative Branch Budget With Congressional Pay Freeze

Voted For FY2016 Legislative Branch Budget That Extended Congressional Pay Freeze. In May 2015, Hurd voted for the bill that would provide $3.3 billion for legislative branch operations, excluding Senate operations, in fiscal 2016. “[The] annual legislative branch spending bill … [included] language extending the congressional salary freeze for a seventh consecutive year.” The bill was passed by a vote of 357-67.

[HR 2250, Vote # 245, 5/19/15; Albany Herald, 5/19/15]

Rejected Invitation To Join Congressional Black Caucus

Rejected Membership In Congressional Black Caucus. “Freshman Rep. Mia Love of Utah, the House’s only black female Republican, has joined the Democrat-dominated Congressional Black Caucus, an organization she promised on the campaign trail to ‘take apart from the inside out.’ Her decision goes against the grain for black Republicans on the Hill: the handful in Congress, including Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina and Rep. Will Hurd of Texas, rejected membership in an organization they believe -- like Love -- promotes division and race-based politics.” [USNews.com, 1/08/15] Invited To Join CBC In November 2014 But Had To Mull Over Decision. “The all-Democrat Congressional Black Caucus has invited Texas Republican Will Hurd to join its ranks, but he’s still mulling over the decision. Hurd, a former undercover CIA operative, is Texas’ first black Republican elected to Congress since Reconstruction. (Hurd campaign) Will Hurd, Congressman-elect for the 23rd District ‘They’re great members, and I’m looking forward to working with them,’ Hurd said. ‘Whether or not I join the committee, we haven’t made that decision.’” [Dallas Morning News, 11/14/14] Hurd Is The First Black Republican From Texas In Congress Since Reconstruction. “Rep.-elect Will Hurd beat his Democratic challenger Pete Gallego in Texas by a narrow 2.1% margin in a pre-dominantly Hispanic congressional district (House District 23) to become the first Black Republican from Texas elected to the United States Congress since Reconstruction.” [Murfreesboro Vision, 1/08/15]
