ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, is the nation’s largest community organization of low- and moderate-income families with more than 220,000 member families organized into 850 neighborhood chapters in more than 100 cities across the United States as well as in cities in Canada, Mexico and Peru. Since 1970 ACORN has taken action and won victories on issues of concern to our members, including better housing for first time homebuyers and tenants, living wages for low-wage workers, more investment in our communities from banks and governments, immigration reform, and better public schools. ACORN achieves these goals by building community organizations that have the power to win changes through direct action, negotiation, legislation, and voter participation.

SCORECARD

OV E RV IE W O F ACO R N LEG IS L ATIV E SCO R ECA R D
The ACORN Legislative Scorecard for the 109th Congress, First and Second Session consists of key votes on measures taken in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate that represent ACORN’s legislative priorities, including immigration reform, voting rights, tax cuts, the budget, education, bankruptcy reform, and disaster relief for Hurricane Katrina survivors. Based on roll-call votes officially recorded on the House and Senate floor as of August 4, 2006, each Member of Congress earned a percentage rating, or grade, which reflects their overall support of these ACORN priorities. By combining first and second session votes, ACORN believes that the Scorecard captures a fair and diverse sample of votes in both chambers – nine in the U.S. House and eight in the U.S. Senate. However, while the scorecard serves as a useful tool in assessing a Member’s support of policies that benefit ACORN’s membership, which consists of low-andmoderate income communities, this rating cannot indicate the full extent of a legislator’s support for or opposition to ACORN’s policy positions. Therefore, the overall assessment of the contributions of any individual Member of Congress should include actions in addition to their voting record, such as their co-sponsorship of important legislation that benefits working families in their district.

A vote in accordance with the ACORN position is a “+” vote; a vote contrary to ACORN’s position is a “–” vote. A “NV” indicates that the Member was not present for the vote and consequently, a yea or nay vote was not cast. If a Member registered present not voting, a “P” is listed. It is important to note that because scores are based on the average of total votes cast in favor of the ACORN position, if a Member was not present for a vote or indicated he or she was present but not voting, his or her overall score was adversely affected.

Repeal of the Estate Tax for the Wealthy (with Minimum Wage provision).
In an attempt to repeal the estate tax again, the Republican Leadership crafted legislation, H.R. 5970, combining a partial repeal of the estate tax, an extension on expiring tax cuts, and an increase in the federal minimum wage. The Senate Republican Leadership attempted to consider the measure, which was previously approved by the House of Representatives, by invoking cloture on the Motion to Proceed to H.R. 5970. While ACORN strongly supports legislation that would ultimately increase the federal minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour and benefit nearly 15 million low-wage workers, the long-term adverse effects of a nearly $1 trillion shortfall as a result of a partial repeal of the estate tax

Increase in Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) Funds.

Senator John Kerry (D-MA) made a motion to suspend the Budget Act in order to allow for consideration of an amendment, which would increase LIHEAP funding, to H.R. 2863, the Department of Defense Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2006. In particular, the amendment would have added $3.1 billion in emergency funding to LIHEAP – a federal program designed to assist low-income homeowners and renters with home heating and cooling needs. If passed, it would have allocated the necessary funds to bring total LIHEAP funding to $5.1 billion, thereby providing more assistance to low-income families and seniors as they struggle to meet increasing energy costs. Although the amendment enjoyed bipartisan support, it was blocked by a procedural motion, which required 60 votes to override, effectively precluding an up or down vote on the amendment. Motion failed 50-49 (60 votes required), (Roll No. 250), October 5, 2005.

K-12 Education Funding Increase for Fiscal Year 2006.

4

During the Senate’s consideration of S.Con.Res. 18, the FY06 Budget Resolution, Senator Bingaman (NMD) offered an amendment that would have increased education funding for elementary and secondary schools by $4.75 billion. ACORN supports full funding of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act to help our nation’s schools comply with the requirements set forth by the statute. Amendment failed 44-49, (Roll No. 143), March 14, 2005.

(Measure to Remove) Amendment to Reduce Social Security Earnings for Legalized Immigrants.

Senator Ensign (R-NV) offered an amendment to S.2611, the Senate’s immigration compromise bill, that would have prevented lawfully present immigrant workers from claiming Social Security based on earnings credited before they were authorized to work in the US. ACORN strongly opposed the Ensign amendment because denying benefits to workers who pay into the Social Security system is unfair and immoral under earned legalization, which already requires that immigrants pay any back taxes, pass criminal background checks, and learn English among other things. A motion to table was offered, which ACORN supported, effectively killing the amendment. Motion Passed 50-49, (Roll No. 130), May 18, 2006.

Fiscal Year 2007 Budget Resolution.

Senator Feinstein (D-CA) offered an amendment to the Senate comprehensive immigration com-promise bill (S. 2611) which would have replaced the bill’s three-tiered legalization program and replaced it with one process that does not divide the immigrant community. ACORN and other allies supported the Orange Card approach, which would have provided a single path to legalization for all undocumented immigrants assuming they are able to pay back taxes, pass criminal and security background checks, learn English, and pay a $2,000 fine. Under the Feinstein amendment, Orange Card holders would have been granted permanent residency but only after those currently in the system had been processed. Amendment Failed 37-61, (Roll No. 138), May 23, 2006.
ACORN POSITION

During consideration of the Budget Reconciliation bill, S.1932, Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) made a motion to suspend the Budget Act in order to allow for consideration of an amendment that would have made it easier for victims of Hurricane Katrina to qualify for Medicaid coverage. The amendment also would have provided full federal funding for Medicaid in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama for one year and provide other health care assistance for hurricane victims by using unspent FEMA dollars. ACORN supported this bill because it would have guaranteed health care funding to assist the neediest families in the affected Gulf region. Motion failed 48-51, (Roll No. 285), November 3, 2005.

While the Senate-passed budget resolution (S.Con.Res.83) provides an additional 0.4% in domestic discretionary spending than the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) baseline level - the amount of funding needed to maintain the current level of spending – it fails to provide for significant investments in health, education, and other safety net programs that benefit low- and moderate-income families. Additionally, in order to make room for tax cuts, the plan increases the deficit by $272 billion over the next five years. Bill passed 51-49, (Roll No. 74), March 16, 2006.

S.256, the so-called “Bankruptcy Prevention and Consumer Protection Act,” made it increasingly difficult for families who are facing economic ruin to discharge their debts. ACORN opposed this legislation because is raises significant concerns for the economic independence of all working people – particularly minorities, seniors, and women – who are more likely to face financial hardships that lead to bankruptcy. For example, many women and children who depend on child support or alimony are adversely affected by this legislation, which became law in April 2005, as it forces them to compete with credit card issuers for the assets of an individual who has filed for bankruptcy protection. Finally, the bill also failed to address one of the key causes contributing to rising bankruptcy filings in recent years: the aggressive marketing of credit cards to Americans that are most financially vulnerable. Bill passed 74-25, (Roll No. 44), March 10, 2005.

Repeal of the Estate Tax for the Wealthy (with Minimum Wage provision).

Amendment to Limit Federal Review of State and Local Voting Laws.

Fiscal Year 2006 Budget Agreement.

The Budget Reconciliation cut $38.8 billion for programs that largely benefit low- and moderate-income families, including $12.7 billion for student loan programs over 5 years and $27 billion in Medicaid over 10 years. Unfortunately, while making serious cuts to key programs that benefit working families, the bill also reduced taxes by $70 billion for the wealthiest Americans. ACORN opposed this measure (passed by the House through H.Res.653) because it is represents an irresponsible fiscal policy that favors special interests over the interests and financial security of working families. Bill passed 216-214, (Roll No. 4), February 1, 2006.

In another attempt to repeal the estate tax, the Republican Leadership crafted legislation, H.R. 5970, combining a partial repeal of the estate tax, an extension on expiring tax cuts, and an increase in the federal minimum wage. While ACORN strongly supports legislation that would ultimately increase the federal minimum wage from $5.15 to $7.25 an hour and benefit nearly 15 million low-wage workers, the longterm adverse effects of a nearly $1 trillion shortfall, as a result of a partial repeal of the estate tax, undermine any real benefits to workers. Not only will working families pay for these large deficits, but they will also bear the brunt of deep cuts in health, education, and employment programs. Bill passed 230-180, (Roll No. 425), July 29, 2006.

Department of Labor, Health & Human Services, and Education Spending Bill for Fiscal Year 2006.

This spending bill (H.R. 3019), which allocates money for key labor, health, and education programs, included $142.5 billion in discretionary funding - $329 million less than provided for Fiscal Year 2005. Because of these deep cuts to programs that support safety net programs, such as home energy assistance in the face of rising energy costs, ACORN opposed this bill. After a failed vote in the House, the Republican Leadership added H.R. 3019 to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill, which all but ensured its final passage. Bill failed 209-224, (Roll No. 598), November 17, 2005.
2006 HOUSE SCOREC ARD 2006 HOUSE SCOREC ARD

Representative Charles Norwood (RGA) offered an amendment to the VRA Reauthorization (H.R. 9) that would have changed the Section 5 coverage formula, which requires 16 states with a history of voter discrimination to obtain pre-clearance from the Department of Justice before making changes to their voting laws or procedures. In particular, Section 5 applies to any state or county that engaged in voter discrimination or intimidation as of November 1, 1964, and where less than 50% of eligible citizens were registered or voted in the presidential elections of 1964, 1968, or 1972. Representative Norwood’s amendment would have changed this formula drastically by making Section 5 applicable to only those jurisdictions that engaged in such practices in the1996, 2000, and 2004 presidetial elections, which would have limited the scope and effectiveness of Section 5. VRA continues to serve as an effective tool in addressing voter discrimination and consequently, civil rights groups, including ACORN, believe that jurisdictions with histories of voter discrimination should continue to have the burden of proof placed on them to ensure that any proposed voting changes to do not deny anyone, especially historically disenfranchised groups, the right to vote. Amendment failed 96-318, (Roll No. 370), July 13, 2006.

Amendment to Deny Language Assistance to Voters.

Sponsored by Representative Steven King (R-IA), this amendment would have repealed Section 203 of the VRA which requires those jurisdictions with large populations of English Language Learners (ELLs) to provide language

assistance. In particular, Section 203 applies to those jurisdictions that have more than 10,000 voting-age citizens (or less if they make up 5% of the population) who belong to a single language minority community, and requires those jurisdictions to provide registration and voting materials for all elections in the minority language as well as oral translation during all phases of the voting process. ACORN opposed this amendment because it would have denied U.S. citizens the right to language assistance when attempting to cast their vote. Amendment failed 185-238, (Roll No. 372), July 13, 2006.

7

Enforcement-only/Antilegalization Immigration Bill (Sensenbrenner bill).

6

Sponsored by James Sensenbrenner (RWI), H.R.4437 represents an enforcement-only approach to unauthorized immigration that fails to include any effective solutions for our broken immigration system. Specifically, the bill makes it harder for legal permanent residents to become citizens, allows local police to become de facto immigration officials, and criminalizes those who provide charitable assistance to undocumented immigrants, including religious providers, without providing legalization for any of the 12 million undocumented immigrants who currently reside in the country. ACORN opposed this legislation because it fails to advance a real comprehensive immigration reform agenda that enhances security as well as provides a path to earned legalization. Bill passed 239-182, (Roll No. 661), December 16, 2005.

Amendment to Extend Emergency Hotel Vouchers for Katrina Survivors.

Bill to Establish National ID standards (REAL ID bill).

This measure, which became law on May 11, 2005, effectively creates a national ID by requiring states to overhaul their driver’s license policies by May 2008 in order to meet federal standards set forth by the Department of Homeland Security. While supporters claimed this legislation was a necessary tool against terrorism, in reality this complex law potentially opens the door to widespread discrimination, particularly against immigrants, and further complicates already existing state and federal laws. ACORN, along with immigrant advocacy and civil liberties organizations, opposed H.R. 418 because it creates new federal ID policies that raise many concerns regarding privacy and civil rights. Bill passed 261-161, (Roll No. 31), February 10, 2005.

Sponsored by Representative Barbara Lee (D-CA), this amendment to the Emergency Supplemental Appropriations Bill (H.R. 4939) sought to stop the hotel evictions of displaced Katrina survivors. Specifically, the amendment would have prohibited the use of funds from being available to implement, administer, or enforce the termination of the hotel emergency sheltering program administered by FEMA. ACORN supported the amendment because it believed that the evictions were premature and that survivors needed more time to find permanent housing and begin the process of rebuilding their lives. Amendment failed 189-230. (Roll No. 63), March 16, 2006.
