Votes in Congress

June 16, 1996|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

Last week, Roll Call misreported the vote of Rep. Elijah E. Cummings, a Maryland Democrat, on the fiscal 1997 budget resolution. (H Con Res 178). Correctly stated, Cummings voted against the budget measure, which was approved 216-211.

The Sun regrets the errors.

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: Tobacco

By a vote of 210 for and 212 against, the House declined to transfer $25 million from tobacco to rural health and development programs.
