VOTES IN CONGRESS

November 28, 1993|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

A box in Sunday's Sun incorrectly listed the votes of Maryland's congressional delegation last week on the Penny-Kasich deficit-reduction plan. Voting to enact the plan were Reps. Helen Delich Bentley, R-2nd; Roscoe G. Bartlett, R-6th; and Wayne T. Gilchrest, R-1st. Voting against the plan were Reps. Benjamin L. Cardin, D-3rd; Steny H. Hoyer, D-5th; Albert R. Wynn, D-4th; Kweisi Mfume, D-7th; and Constance A. Morella, R-8th.

The Sun regrets the error.

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