Votes in Congress

September 08, 1996|By Roll Call Report Syndicate

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: U.N. command

Voting 299 for and 109 against, the House sent the Senate a bill (HR 3308) curbing a president's power to deploy U.S. troops in multinational forces under United Nations command, as has been done in recent years in Somalia, Bosnia and Haiti. In part, the bill requires a president to certify at least 15 days in advance that the mission is in the national interest and to provide Congress with a detailed justification, cost projections and an exit strategy.

A yes vote was to pass the bill.
