Outstanding Roll Calls in the Senate

Leading roll calls in the Senate during the first session of the 76th Congress are given in full, in geographical arrangement, in the table which occupies the four following pages of this report.

A few leading measures omitted form the roll-call table (the 1940 relief bill, Social Security Act amendments, the omnibus transportation bill) were carried on final passage by overwhelming votes. In these cases, roll calls on amendments were more important than the roll call on the bill itself. The Senate gave its approval to other leading measures (the 1939 relief bills, the tax bill, and the bill to prohibit pernicious political activity by government employees) without calling the roll.

Outstanding Roll Calls in the House

Analysis of leading roll calls taken in the House during the first session of the 76th Congress shows that majorities of the Democratic and Republican members voted together on few leading measures except those dealing with relief and national defense. Parity payments for farmers were overwhelmingly opposed by the Republicans and overwhelmingly supported by the Democrats. Democrats voted more than four to one against the Townsend old-age it. Increases in pensions for dependents of World War veterans received the support of all the Republicans and all except on of the Democrats present and voting.
