Pete Sessions votes "no" to Paycheck Fairness Act
Pete Sessions joined fellow Republicans in a party-line vote against H.R. 1338, The Paycheck Fairness Act, "to provide more effective remedies to victims of discrimination in the payment of wages on the basis of sex". The bill passed 247-178, with 9 not voting and 14 Republicans crossing party lines to vote for paycheck fairness. (See Roll Call No. 556).
