  So the amendment was rejected.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  Stated for:
  Mr. FILNER. Madam Chair, on rollcall 108, I was away from the Capitol 
due to prior commitments to my constituents. Had I been present, I 
would have voted ``aye.''
  The Acting CHAIR (Mrs. Emerson). There being no further amendments, 
under the rule, the Committee rises.
  Accordingly, the Committee rose; and the Speaker pro tempore (Mr. 
Simpson) having assumed the chair, Mrs. Emerson, Acting Chair of the 
Committee of the Whole House on the state of the Union, reported that 
that Committee, having had under consideration the bill (H.R. 3606) to 
increase American job creation and economic growth by improving access 
to the public capital markets for emerging growth companies, and, 
pursuant to House Resolution 572, reported the bill, as amended by that 
resolution, back to the House with sundry further amendments adopted in 
the Committee of the Whole.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Under the rule, the previous question is 
ordered.
  Is a separate vote demanded on any further amendment reported from 
the Committee of the Whole? If not, the Chair will put them en gros.
  The amendments were agreed to.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the engrossment and third 
reading of the bill.
  The bill was ordered to be engrossed and read a third time, and was 
read the third time.


                           Motion to Recommit

  Ms. ESHOO. Mr. Speaker, I have a motion to recommit at the desk.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Is the gentlewoman opposed to the bill?
  Ms. ESHOO. In its current form.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Clerk will report the motion to 
recommit.
  The Clerk read as follows:

       Ms. Eshoo moves to recommit the bill H.R. 3606 to the 
     Committee on Financial Services with instructions to report 
     the same back to the House forthwith with the following 
     amendment:
       Page 2, line 12 insert before the period the following: ``, 
     and discloses publicly and to the Commission any political 
     expenditures made by the issuer during such fiscal year''.
       Page 3, line 21, insert before the period the following: 
     ``, and discloses publicly and to the Commission any 
     political expenditures made by the issuer during such fiscal 
     year''.

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentlewoman from California is 
recognized for 5 minutes.
  Ms. ESHOO. Mr. Speaker, I yield to the gentleman from Massachusetts 
(Mr. Frank).
  Mr. FRANK of Massachusetts. Mr. Speaker, I strongly support a very 
good recommit motion, but I want to clarify one point.
  Reference was made in the debate to this bill being one that would 
relieve small businesses of regulations imposed by this administration 
recently. Let me be very clear. With the exception of Say-on-Pay, which 
I strongly support, the administrative and regulatory issues addressed 
here were not imposed by this administration, were not a result of the 
bill. These are longstanding things that predate this administration. 
So I'm for the bill, but I wanted to clear up that misconception. This 
is not any reaction to anything that was done recently; it's making 
accommodation for these small businesses with regard to things that are 
of long standing.
  Ms. ESHOO. Mr. Speaker, my colleagues, this is the final amendment to 
improve this important piece of legislation that I fully support. 
Capital formation is the lifeblood of innovation in the 21st century, 
as it was in our past in America. It's so essential to our national 
economy. Just as importantly, transparency is the lifeblood of our 
democracy.
  The amendment I'm offering today will ensure that emerging growth 
companies nurtured under today's legislation will fully disclose their 
political expenditures. Just as entrepreneurs deserve all of the tools 
available to create and grow companies, voters deserve every tool to 
decide on public issues for themselves.
  Since the Supreme Court's disastrous Citizens United decision, voters 
across the country have been treated to a sad spectacle not seen since 
the Watergate era or even the Gilded Age. This year's Presidential 
election is bearing witness to hundreds of millions of dollars spent on 
behalf of candidates. The vast majority of the money is coming from 
outside the channels of parties and candidates, unaccountable to the 
voters for the messages they deliver. Instead, money from corporations 
and extremely wealthy people is now being spent through so-called 
nonprofits and super PACs, denying and delaying disclosure or 
preventing it all together.
  The American people deserve better. House Democrats have offered 
comprehensive transparency legislation called the DISCLOSE Act, and we 
should pass that bill together as soon as possible. We can begin that 
work today by adopting this final amendment and passing the bill. It 
will not burden small businesses, and it will empower the American 
people.
  Mr. Speaker, this final amendment to the bill will not kill it nor 
will it send it back to committee. If it's adopted, the bill will 
proceed to final passage as amended. Congress can say today to the 
American people that we respect them. We can say we trust them to 
decide for themselves because they have complete information.
  I've always believed that sunlight is the best disinfectant. By 
voting for this amendment and voting for the bill, we can score two 
victories for the American people. We can strengthen small businesses 
across our country, and we can strengthen democracy.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  Mr. McCARTHY of California. Mr. Speaker, I rise in opposition to the 
motion to recommit.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The gentleman is recognized for 5 minutes.
  Mr. McCARTHY of California. Mr. Speaker, it never ceases to amaze me 
how good my friends on the other side of the aisle have become in 
putting politics before jobs.
  They've said ``no'' to the dozens of job bills that the House 
Republicans have put forward and ``no'' to unleashing investment in 
small business.
  Mr. Speaker, we have all been somewhere where you've seen a family, a 
family with a small child, and the child is crying and throwing a 
tantrum and the parent turns and gives the child what they want, but 
the child still cries. Today we see another good example of something 
good still not being good enough for the other side.
  At a time when the economy is struggling, unemployment above 8 
percent for more than 35 consecutive months, underemployment above 15 
percent, you have a bill here that would

[[Page H1288]]

unshackle and unleash small business growth. So it is beyond me why, 
after both subcommittee and full committee markups where provisions 
passed almost unanimously, this idea never came forth after a full and 
open debate on the floor with 15 Democrat amendments.

                              {time}  1230

  What really shocks me the most is that the President of the United 
States offered a statement in support of the bill. But when I read his 
entire statement, Mr. Speaker, he never mentions this motion to 
recommit or the concern. So, Mr. Speaker, it's one more time that the 
floor tries to come together, but politics are put before job growth.
  So I urge all my friends to come together in a bipartisan fashion--
the way this bill was created--to vote down this motion and support the 
underlying bill.
  I yield back the balance of my time.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Without objection, the previous question is 
ordered on the motion to recommit.
  There was no objection.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The question is on the motion to recommit.
  The question was taken; and the Speaker pro tempore announced that 
the noes appeared to have it.


                             Recorded Vote

  Ms. ESHOO. Mr. Speaker, I demand a recorded vote.
  A recorded vote was ordered.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore. Pursuant to clause 9 of rule XX, the Chair 
will reduce to 5 minutes the minimum time for any electronic vote on 
the question of passage.
  The vote was taken by electronic device, and there were--ayes 170, 
noes 244, not voting 18, as follows:

                             [Roll No. 109]

  Mr. KUCINICH changed his vote from ``aye'' to ``no.''
  So the bill was passed.
  The result of the vote was announced as above recorded.
  A motion to reconsider was laid on the table.
  Stated against:
  Mr. FILNER. Mr. Speaker, on rollcall 110, I was away from the Capitol 
due to prior commitments to my constituents. Had I been present, I 
would have voted ``no.''


                          Personal explanation

  Mr. VISCLOSKY. Mr. Speaker, on March 8, 2012, I was absent from the 
House and missed rollcall votes 107 through 110.
  Had I been present for rollcall 107, on agreeing to the Peters 
amendment to H.R. 3606, to increase American job creation and economic 
growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging 
growth companies, I would have voted ``aye.''
  Had I been present for rollcall 108, on agreeing to the Capps 
amendment to H.R. 3606, to increase American job creation and economic 
growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging 
growth companies, I would have voted ``aye.''
  Had I been present for rollcall 109, on the motion to recommit with 
instructions H.R. 3606, to increase American job creation and economic 
growth by improving access to the public capital markets for emerging 
growth companies, I would have voted ``aye.''
  Had I been present for rollcall 110, on passage of H.R. 3606, to 
increase American job creation and economic growth by improving access 
to the public capital markets for emerging growth companies, I would 
have voted ``aye.''


              Authorizing the Clerk to Correct Engrossment

  Mr. BACHUS. Mr. Speaker, I ask unanimous consent that in the 
engrossment of H.R. 3606, the Clerk be authorized to correct section 
numbers, punctuation, and cross-references and to make other technical 
and conforming changes as may be necessary to accurately reflect the 
actions of the House.
  The SPEAKER pro tempore (Mr. Dold). Is there objection to the request 
of the gentleman from Alabama?
  There was no objection.
