Conservative Illinois Congresswoman Mary Miller offered an amendment that would require airlines to reinstate pilots who were fired or forced to resign because of vaccine mandates.
That amendment failed on July 19, 141-294.
Iowa’s Republican delegation split. Representatives Mariannette Miller-Meeks and Zach Nunn voted in support of the amendment, while Representatives Ashley Hinson and Randy Feenstra voted against requiring airlines to reinstate pilots who were fired or forced to resign due to vaccine mandates.
Hinson and Feenstra joined 211 Democrats in opposing the amendment. One Democrat voted in favor of the amendment.
Among Republicans, 140 supported the measure while 83 — including Feenstra and Hinson — opposed it.
