{{Yea vote}} On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect.

The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by [[United States Senate|Senate Democrats]] was to require income verification for [[Obamacare]] subsidies.<ref>[http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/house-effort-to-end-fiscal-crisis-collapses-leaving-senate-to-forge-last-minute-solution/2013/10/16/1e8bb150-364d-11e3-be86-6aeaa439845b_story_1.html ''The Washington Post'', "Reid, McConnell propose bipartisan Senate bill to end shutdown, extend borrowing," accessed October 16, 2013]</ref> The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from [[Republican]] members.

The '''[[Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress)]]''' is a two-part measurement that illustrates the extent to which members of the [[United States Congress|U.S. Congress]] have prospered during their tenure as public servants. <br>
 +
It consists of two different metrics:
 +
*[[Changes in Net Worth of U.S. Senators and Representatives (Personal Gain Index)|Changes in Net Worth]]

 +
Based on [[Household net worth (Member of Congress)|congressional financial disclosure forms]] and calculations made available by ''OpenSecrets.org'', Roskam's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $324,050 and $1,385,000. That averages to '''$854,525''', which is lower than the average net worth of Republican representatives in 2012 of $6,956,438.47. Roskam ranked as the 225th most wealthy representative in 2012.<ref>[http://www.opensecrets.org/pfds/CIDsummary.php?CID=N00004719&year=2012 ''OpenSecrets'', "Roskam, (R-IL), 2012," accessed February 18, 2014]</ref> Between 2007 and 2012, Roskam's calculated net worth<ref>This figure represents the total percentage growth from either 2004 (if the member entered office in 2004 or earlier) or their first year in office (as noted in the chart below).</ref> decreased by an average of 8 percent per year.

Peter James Roskam (b. September 13, 1961, in Hinsdale, IL) is a Republican member of the U.S. House of Representatives. Roskam was elected by voters from Illinois' 6th Congressional District. He was first elected to the U.S. House in 2006.[1]

Roskam launched an unsuccessful bid for majority whip. He was defeated by Steve Scalise (R-LA) and also ran against Marlin Stutzman (R-IN).[4][5][6] The whip post became open when Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was successful in his bid to succeed Eric Cantor as majority leader.[7]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Nay3.png Roskam voted against House Amendment 69, which would have amended HR 3 to "require that the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security, conduct a study of the vulnerabilities of the Keystone XL pipeline to a terrorist attack and certify that necessary protections have been put in place." The amendment failed on May 22, 2013, with a vote of 176 - 239 and was largely along party lines.[21]

Yea3.png Roskam voted in favor of HR 624 - the CISPA (2013). The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill permitted federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities.[22] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[21]

Economy

Farm bill

Yea3.png On January 29, 2014, the U.S. House approved the Federal Agriculture Reform and Risk Management Act of 2013, H.R. 2642, also known as the Farm Bill.[23] The bill passed by a vote of 251-166. The nearly 1,000-page bill reformed and continued various programs of the Department of Agriculture through 2018. The $1 trillion bill expanded crop insurance for farmers by $7 billion over the next decade and created new subsidies for rice and peanut growers that would kick in when prices drop.[24][25] However, cuts to the food stamp program cut an average of $90 per month for 1.7 million people in 15 states.[25] Roskam voted with 161 other Republican representatives in favor of the bill.

2014 Budget

Roskam voted with the majority of the Republican party in favor of the bill.[26]

Government shutdown

See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Yea3.png On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[29] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[30] Roskam voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[31]

Yea3.png The shutdown ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[32] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Roskam voted for HR 2775.[33]

The Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress) is a two-part measurement that illustrates the extent to which members of the U.S. Congress have prospered during their tenure as public servants.
It consists of two different metrics:

PGI: Change in net worth

Net Worth Metric graphic.png

Based on congressional financial disclosure forms and calculations made available by OpenSecrets.org, Roskam's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $324,050 and $1,385,000.

Filings required by the Federal Election Commission report on the industries that give to each candidate.

Roskam received the most donations from individuals and PACs employed by the Securities & Investment industry.
