{{oppose vote}} 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.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll504.xml ''Clerk of the U.S. House,'' "Final vote results for Roll Call 504," accessed October 31, 2013]</ref> 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.<ref>[http://www.buzzfeed.com/katenocera/government-shutdown-how-we-got-here?bffb ''Buzzfeed'', "Government Shutdown: How We Got Here," accessed October 1, 2013]</ref> Andrews voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2013/roll504.xml''Clerk of the U.S. House,'' "Final vote results for Roll Call 504," accessed October 31, 2013]</ref>

The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funds 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.

On March 19, 2013, the [[House Ethics Committee]] advanced the investigation by appointing an investigative panel to further examine the allegations. Such a panel has the power to compel testimony through subpoenas, and is charged with thoroughly investigating the legislator in question before the House Ethics Committee decides whether to dismiss the case, or to punish any non-compliance that may be found.<ref name=ethics>[http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/20/us/politics/house-panel-finds-initial-evidence-of-ethics-abuses-by-2-lawmakers.html?_r=1& ''NYTimes.com'' House Ethics Panel Finds Cause to Investigate 2 Lawmakers March 20, 2013]</ref>The chairman of the Andrews investigative subcommittee is [[Trey Gowdy]] (R-S.C.) with Del.

Comparatively, the 112th Congress had 1.14% of introduced bills enacted into law in the first session.[6] For more information pertaining to Andrews's voting record in the 113th Congress, please see the below sections.[7]

National security

National Defense Authorization Act

Voted "Yes" Andrews supported 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.[8]

Department of Homeland Security Appropriations

Voted "No" Andrews voted in opposition of HR 2217 - the Department of Homeland Security Appropriations Act of 2014. The bill passed the House on June 6, 2013, with a vote of 245 - 182 and was largely along party lines.[8]

Keystone Pipeline Amendment

Voted "Yes" Andrews voted in favor 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.[8]

Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act

Voted "No" Andrews voted in opposition of HR 624 - the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. The bill passed the House on April 18, 2013, with a vote of 288 - 127. The bill would allow federal intelligence agencies to share cybersecurity intelligence and information with private entities and utilities.[9] The bill was largely supported by Republicans but divided the Democratic Party.[8]

Economy

Farm Bill
See also: United States Farm Bill 2013

Voted "No" Andrews voted against the Farm Bill on July 11, 2013. The bill passed in a 216-208 vote.[10] The bill passed included farm policy, but did not include food stamps.[11]

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "No" 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.[12] 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.[13] Andrews voted against the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[14]

Voted "Yes" The shutdown finally 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 funds 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.[15] 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. Andrews voted for HR 2775.[16]

Immigration

Morton Memos Enforcement Prohibition

Voted "No" Andrews voted against 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.[17] The vote largely followed party lines.[18]

Healthcare

Repealing Obamacare

Voted "No" Andrews has voted against all attempts to repeal or delay the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.[19]

Social issues

Abortion

Voted "No" Andrews voted against HR 1797 - Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act. The resolution passed the House on June 18, 2013, with a vote of 228 - 196. The purpose of the bill is to ban abortions that would take place 20 or more weeks after fertilization.[20]

Previous congressional sessions

Fiscal Cliff

Voted "Yes" Andrews 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 172 Democrats that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257 - 167 vote on January 1, 2013.[21]

Campaign finance investigation

In 2012, Andrews is facing an FEC investigation of his use of campaign funds, some of which he spent on seemingly non-campaign-related travel and a speeding ticket, among other things.[22][23]

According to the congressional ethics office, Andrews may have violated federal law by using campaign funds to pay for personal trips to Scotland and Los Angeles and by using a graduation party for his daughter to raise money for his campaign.[24]

The report stated that Andrews, "refused to provide requested documents" and released credit card statements "after making significant redactions." Andrews denied charges, stating that "the record will show that I have followed all rules and met all standards of the House."[25]

On March 19, 2013, the House Ethics Committee advanced the investigation by appointing an investigative panel to further examine the allegations. Such a panel has the power to compel testimony through subpoenas, and is charged with thoroughly investigating the legislator in question before the House Ethics Committee decides whether to dismiss the case, or to punish any non-compliance that may be found.[25]The chairman of the Andrews investigative subcommittee is Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) with Del. Pedro Pierluisi (D-Puerto Rico) serving as its ranking member.[26] However, no conclusion has yet been reached on the matter.[25]
