Freedom Caucus Could Force Vote on Goodlatte Bill to Derail Amnesty Petition
House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) said on Tuesday that he and the Freedom Caucus are considering leveraging their votes for the upcoming farm bill in an effort to block an amnesty Discharge Petition to force a vote on Rep. Jeff Denham's (R-Calif.) H.Res. 774. He said that their group will likely pressure GOP House leadership to vote on Rep Bob Goodlatte's (R-Va.) H.R. 4760, the Securing America's Future Act.
