Votes in Congress

January 06, 1991|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

Here is how Maryland's representatives were recorded on important roll call votes at the outset of the 102nd Congress. There were no Senate votes.

Y: YES N: NO X: NOT VOTING

OUSE: TO SET HOUSE RULES

By a vote of 242-160, members adopted House operating rules (H Res 5) for the 102nd Congress, a package put forth by Democrats, who hold a majority of seats and control the chamber. While most of the provisions are routine carry-overs from previous sessions, some broke new ground and a few were denounced by Republicans as Democratic power grabs.

Most disputed was language (see issue below) to deny the White House's Office of Management and Budget power over spending that it had been granted by last October's deficit accord.

B6 A yes vote supported the Democratic rules package.

YES....Cardin, Benjamin L., D-3rd

NO.....Gilchrest, Wayne T., R-1st

YES....Hoyer, Steny H. D-5th

YES....McMillen, Tom, D-4th

'YES....Mfume, Kweisi, D-7th

NO.....Morella, Constance A., R-8th

HOUSE: TO REJECT GOP PLAN

By a vote of 160 for and 256 against, members rejected a GOP bid to retain White House control of fiscal scorekeeping power embodied in last year's $500 billion deficit-reduction plan. The motion during debate on H Res 5 also sought to guarantee a House vote on a balanced budget constitutional amendment.

The vote ensured approval (above) of a House rule that will shift scorekeeping on entitlement and tax measures from the Office of Management and Budget, which answers to the president, to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office and the Democratic-led Joint Economic Committee.

Because the pay-as-you-go deficit package requires new spending increases and revenue losses to be offset by savings elsewhere, the estimator of the cost of those measures will wield power over the fate of many federal programs. Each party fears the other will manipulate estimates to further its agenda.

PD A yes vote opposed shifting certain fiscal power from the White

House to Capitol Hill.
