Richard L. Hanna (b. January 25, 1951, in Utica, NY) is a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives representing New York's 22nd Congressional District. Hanna was first elected to the House in 2010 and is currently serving his second consecutive term, after winning re-election on November 6, 2012. Before redistricting in 2012, Hanna had previously served the New York's 24th Congressional District.

Hanna won re-election to the U.S. House to represent the 22nd Congressional District of New York on November 4, 2014.[1] He received the Republican and Independence Party nominations in the primary on June 24, 2014.[2]

Hanna graduated Reed College with honors in economics and political science. Prior to beginning his congressional career, he started his own company, Hanna Construction.

National security

NDAA

Yea3.png Hanna voted in support of HR 1960 - the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2014. The bill passed the House on June 14, 2013, with a vote of 315 - 108. Both parties were somewhat divided on the vote.[9]

DHS Appropriations

Yea3.png Hanna voted in support of HR 2217 - the DHS Appropriations Act (2014) Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 and was largely along party lines.[9]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Nay3.pngHanna voted in opposition of 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.[9]

CISPA (2013)

Yea3.png Hanna voted in support 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.[10] The bill was largely supported by Republicans, but divided the Democratic Party.[9]

Economy

Farm Bill

See also: United States Farm Bill 2013

Yea3.png Hanna voted for the Farm Bill on July 11, 2013. The bill passed in a 216-208 vote.[11] The bill passed included farm policy, but did not include food stamps.[12]

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.[13] 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.[14] Hanna voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[15]

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.[16] 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. Hanna voted for HR 2775.[17]

Immigration

Morton Memos Prohibition

Yea3.png Hanna supported House Amendment 136 - Prohibits the Enforcement of the Immigration Executive Order. The amendment was adopted by the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 224 - 201. The purpose of the amendment as stated on the official text is to "prohibit the use of funds to finalize, implement, administer, or enforce the Morton Memos." These memos would have granted administrative amnesty to certain illegal aliens residing in the United States.[18] The vote largely followed party lines.[19]

Healthcare

Repealing Obamacare

Yea3.png Hanna supported all attempts to repeal or delay the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.[20]

Social issues

House vote on abortion ban

Nay3.png On June 18, 2013, the House voted 228-196, mostly along party lines, to approve a ban on late-term abortions, or abortions occurring after 20 weeks of pregnancy[21][22] A number of members crossed over party lines in their votes. The vote was largely symbolic as the Senate is not expected to take up the bill and the White House has threatened to veto the legislation.[23] Hanna was one of six Republican members who voted against the ban.

Government affairs

HR 676

See also: Boehner's lawsuit against the Obama administration

Yea3.png On July 30, 2014, the U.S. House approved a resolution 225 to 201 to sue President Barack Obama for exceeding his constitutional authority. Five Republicans--Thomas Massie of Kentucky, Paul Broun of Georgia, Scott Garrett of New Jersey, Walter Jones of North Carolina and Steve Stockman of Texas-- voted with Democrats against the lawsuit.[24] Hanna joined the other 224 Republicans in favor of the lawsuit. All Democrats voted against the resolution.[25][26]

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal Cliff

Yea3.png Hanna voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels. He was 1 of 85 Republicans that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[27]

2012

See also: New York's 24th Congressional District elections, 2012

Hanna ran for re-election in 2012 on the Republican and Conservative tickets.[33] He defeated Michael Kicinski Sr. in the June 26 Republican primary.[34] Hanna was re-elected in November.[35]

Hanna had the obvious advantage of being an incumbent, along with having campaign funds far exceeding those of any competitors.[36]

Kicinski, who founded a local Tea Party group, said that Hanna had not made good on his campaign promises to reduce the budget and uphold the debt limit.[37] Kicinski supported more immediate changes, while Hanna had worked toward 20- or 30-year plans.[37] Kicinski also pledged not to raise the debt ceiling, while he said Hanna voted three times to raise the debt ceiling.[38]

Neither candidate supported federal subsidies for wind energy, and both supported hydrofracking, a controversial method of extracting oil and natural gas, although Kicinski said he would only support it if done responsibly. Both opposed the nationalized health care bill known as Obamacare, but Hanna saw some good parts of the bill, particularly those requiring coverage for pre-existing conditions.[37]

Kicinski was endorsed by two state pro-life groups.[39][40] Hanna, who was backed by the Conservative Party in his 2010 takeover of a Democratic-held seat, failed to receive the Conservative endorsement in 2012 due to his moderate voting record. Hanna stated, "I think both parties are owned by their extremes.... So, someplace the solutions are going to come out of that 70, 80 percent of people who don't fit those outer places."[41]

The Personal Gain Index (U.S. Congress) is a four-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 four 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, Hanna's net worth as of 2012 was estimated between $14,367,153 and $41,710,000. That averages to $28,038,576.50, which is higher than the average net worth of Republican representatives in 2012 of $7,614,097.96.

PGI: Donation Concentration Metric

See also: The Donation Concentration Metric (U.S. Congress Personal Gain Index)

Filings required by the Federal Election Commission report on the industries that give to each candidate. Using campaign filings and information calculated by OpenSecrets.org, Ballotpedia calculated the percentage of donations by industry received by each incumbent over the course of his or her career (or 1989 and later, if elected prior to 1988). Hanna received the most donations from individuals and PACs employed by the Securities & Investment industry.

From 2007-2014, 19.95 percent of Hanna's career contributions came from the top five industries as listed below.[61]
