VOTES IN CONGRESS

October 10, 1993|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: CHILD SAFETY SEATS

By a vote of 270 for and 155 against, the House gutted an amendment requiring airlines to provide safety seats for children under 2 years old. The amendment would have resulted in parents having to buy a ticket for the infant. Under present policy, infants travel for free if they are held, and a ticket must be bought if parents bring a safety seat aboard.

A yes vote opposed the amendment in behalf of mandatory child-restraint seats on airline.
