Votes In Congress

April 05, 1992|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

Here is how members of Maryland's delegation on Capitol Hill were recorded on important roll-call votes last week:

YES N: NO X: NOT VOTING

HOUSE: TO REJECT S&L FUNDS

By a vote of 125 for and 298 against, the House defeated a bill (HR 4704) enabling the Resolution Trust Corp. to spend $17 billion to continue the S&L cleanup for the next several months.

The vote appeared likely to halt RTC closures of problem thrifts.

It clashed with Senate approval of a bill releasing the $17 billion and authorizing $25 billion more for the S&L salvage operation, sending eventual costs including debt service above $250 billion. A yes vote was to spend $17 billion more on the S&L cleanup.

A yes vote was to allow taxpayer-funded fetal research only on spontaneously aborted fetuses.
