4th term Republican from Michigan 3rd District.

NRLC voting record for Congressman Justin Amash

As of July 11, 2014, during Congressman Amash's entire length of service in the House of Representatives, he has voted in accord with NRLC's position 11 times and contrary to NRLC's position three times, for a career percentage of 79% in accord with NRLC's position. All of the individual votes are correctly reported and are described in detail in the NRLC House Scorecards for the 112th and 113th Congress, which are posted on this Legislative Action Center. However, due to a software glitch, the bar-graph display that displays under the "Votes" tab below, which is supposed to graphically summarize Mr. Amash's career NRLC voting record, is not accurate. This software glitch is being addressed. In the meantime, please rely on the scorecards, or on the list of individual roll call votes that appears beneath the "Votes" tab, but do not rely on the bar graph.
