The Select Committee to Investigate the Voting Irregularities of August 2, 2007, met to review House voting procedures and heard testimony about the sequence of events during roll call vote 814. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and Representative McNulty testified, as well as members of the staff.

Roll call vote 814 was on a Republican motion to recommit the fiscal 2008 agriculture spending bill (HR 3161) back to committee with instructions to amend it. The instructions to recommit would have banned Welfare benefits for illegal immigrants. The presiding officer at the time, Representative Michael R. McNulty (D-NY), ruled that the motion had been defeated because he was reading the electronic tally board which read 214 to 214. Republicans argued that the tally board did not reflect votes that were still coming in. After the gavel came down the electronic tally board showed a vote of 215 to 213. close
