2005 was a year of major legislative successes for the Republican Main Street Partnership. Through the hard work of our House and Senate Members, we achieved numerous victories on our policy agenda.

Stem Cell Research – With the dedicated leadership of Main Street President Congressman Mike Castle, we were successful in passing legislation in the House to expand embryonic stem cell research. Our Senate supporters advanced the issue, and were able to win the support of Senate Majority Leader Frist to bring up a stem cell bill early in 2006.

Drilling in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge – We were successful in killing an effort to open up land in the Artic National Wildlife Refuge for oil drilling. Our House Members persuaded their leadership to remove ANWR language from the budget reconciliation bill and our Senators were instrumental in voting to strip similar provisions from an unrelated defense measure.

Davis-Bacon Prevailing Wage Rate Requirements – After hurricane Katrina, President Bush suspended the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage provisions for federal construction projects. Our House Members successfully demonstrated that this was not saving the federal government any money and persuaded the President to rescind his action, thus restoring important wage protections for workers.

Role of Women in Military – Our House Members fought hard to remove language in a House defense bill that would have reversed current military policy of allowing women to serve in combat positions.

Anti-Torture Prohibition – Led by Senator John McCain, Main Street Members of Congress successfully battled President Bush, the Pentagon, and their colleagues to establish new guidelines prohibiting torture of military detainees.
