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

A yes vote was to approve term limits.

HOUSE: RETROACTIVE LIMITS

By a vote of 135 for and 297 against, the House rejected a term limits constitutional amendment similar to HJ Res 73 (above) except that it would have covered current members of Congress and permitted states to limit U.S. lawmakers to even shorter tenures.

A yes vote was to make the limits retroactive as well as prospective.
