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

Y: YES ... N: NO ... X: NOT VOTING

HOUSE: There were no House votes.

SENATE: ARMS FOR BOSNIA

By a vote of 87 for and 9 against, the Senate urged President Clinton to lift the U.S. embargo on arms to Bosnia so that Bosnian forces can better defend themselves against Serbs and Serbian allies in the civil war in the former Yugoslavia.

A yes vote was to send U.S. arms to Bosnia.

SENATE: MIA-POW ISSUE

By a vote of 42 for and 58 against, the Senate rejected an amendment linking open trade with Vietnam to more information from Hanoi on U.S. MIAs and POWs in the Vietnam War. President Clinton could lift the trade embargo only after certifying Hanoi has provided the fullest possible accounting of the 2,000-plus American troops whose fate in Vietnam, Laos or Cambodia remains in question, under the amendment. The vote occurred during debate on the 1994-95 State Department budget (S 1281).

A yes vote was to withhold trade with Vietnam until Hanoi has been more forthcoming about U.S. MIAs and POWs.

SENATE: EXPANDING NATO

By a vote of 94 for and 3 against, the Senate endorsed President Clinton's "Partnership for Peace" strategy for eventually admitting some former Eastern European nations into NATO. The sense-of-the-Senate resolution was carefully worded so as to not antagonize Russia. It welcomed countries such as Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Poland into NATO after they have instituted democratic reforms and shown they can contribute to the mutual defense alliance, among other conditions.

A yes vote endorsed President Clinton's go-slow approach on expanding NATO.
