Congresswoman Jahana Hayes, whose district includes Newtown, was in the chair to announce the vote tally on the Marjorie Taylor Greene resolution stripping her Georgia colleague of committee assignments. In defense of her vote, Hayes said she called it an act of conscience, in defense of her district. Among the 11 Republicans voting with the majority were some members from Florida. Greene has previously said she believed the shootings at Sandy Hook School and Parkland were staged. New York Republicans also voted with the majority as Greene had previously stated that she believed 9/11 was an inside job.
