Votes for past H.R. 1 bills, by political party
Data: Quorum; Table: Axios Visuals Note: H.R. 1 legislation for the 106th, 109th, 113th and 114th Congresses did not make it to a floor vote

House Republicans' H.R. 1 bill — a label historically used to signal the party in power's top legislative priority — may get bipartisan support for the first time since 2007, according to data from Quorum.
