February 06, 1994|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

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

Y: YES N: NO X: NOT VOTING

HOUSE: DISASTER AID

By a vote of 337 for and 74 against, the House sent the Senate a $9.72 billion emergency spending bill (HR 3759) that includes $7.78 billion to help the Los Angeles area recover from last month's earthquake.

A yes vote was to pass the bill.

HOUSE: DEFICIT ISSUE

By a vote of 178 for and 240 against, the House rejected an amendment to offset the $9.72 billion cost of HR 3759 (above) with equivalent cuts in a wide range of federal programs. This vote preserved the bill as an emergency measure whose outlays for earthquake recovery and other purposes will be added to the fiscal 1994 deficit.

A yes vote was to put HR 3759 on a pay-as-you-go rather than deficit-spending basis.
