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

Y: YES N: NO X: NOT VOTING

HOUSE: LEGISLATIVE BRANCH BUDGET

By a vote of 279 for and 143 against, the House approved a fiscal 1993 legislative branch budget of $1.81 billion, about the same amount as the comparable 1992 appropriation. Senate operating funds estimated at $564 million were not yet included in the bill (HR 5427).

A yes vote was to pass the bill funding Congress.

HOUSE: PORK BARREL ISSUE

By a vote of 143 for and 276 against, the House refused to eliminate $19 million for a road in the district of Appropriations Committee Chairman Jamie Whitten, D-Miss. The amendment nTC was proposed to a bill (HR 5428) appropriating $8.6 billion for military construction in fiscal 1993. The road would give combat vehicles better access to the Army National Guard's Camp McCain.

A yes vote was to kill the project.

HOUSE: RAIL STRIKE

The House approved, 248 for and 140 against, legislation ordering striking International Association of Machinists rail workers back to the job while their contract dispute with major freight haulers is bound over to federal mediation. The measure (HJ Res 517) also blocked planned strikes against Amtrak, the rail passenger line, and the freight service Conrail.

A yes vote was to approve the legislation.

SENATE: TO RESOLVE RAIL DISPUTE

By a vote of 87 for and 6 against, the Senate sent to the White House emergency legislation (see House vote above) to keep America's railroads running while federally supervised arbitration and mediation attempts to resolve issues between labor and management. The process has 38 days in which to succeed, after which strikes and lockouts would be legal again.

A yes vote supported federal intervention in the rail industry disputes.
