The House did not pass a push to defund Kamala Harris’ office — but 106 Republicans voted yes.

House lawmakers defeated an effort by Rep. Mike Collins (R-Ga.) to defund the office of Vice President Kamala Harris, one of the highest-level efforts yet to defund prominent federal officials and agencies.

“Kamala Harris has been a failure as vice president,” Collins said as the chamber debated its financial services spending bill.

106 Republicans voted for the measure, even as Rep. Steve Womack (R-Ark.) spoke for Republicans opposed to it. “We’ve taken steps to send that power of the purse message to the Office of the Vice President,” he said on the floor, calling the amendment “a bridge too far.”

It wasn’t the only significant amendment considered on Wednesday afternoon.

Lawmakers defeated a measure from Rep. Scott Perry (R-Pa.) to slash all funding to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau with a 140-286 vote.
Members also voted against another attempt to invoke the so-called Holman rule to target the salary of SEC Chair Gary Gensler by a 175-252 tally.
House Republicans adopted an amendment from Rep. Andy Barr (R-Ky.) to bar implementation of a sweeping executive order from President Joe Biden on climate change. That passed 219-210.

Of course, these efforts come before the Senate weighs in with its versions of the spending legislation, so none are likely to become law.
