Votes in Congress

September 22, 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: Abortion

By a vote of 285 for and 137 against, the House overrode President Clinton's veto of a bill (HR 1833) outlawing a late-term abortion procedure. The bill makes it a crime for doctors to perform an abortion that involves partially extracting the fetus and terminating it.

A yes vote was to override the veto and thus ban the disputed abortion procedure.

House: Speaker Gingrich

Voting 225 for and 179 against, the House blocked a Democratic bid (HR 526) to require public disclosure of certain legal findings in the Ethics Committee's investigation of Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. At issue was whether to release at this time the work of an outside counsel who is assisting the probe.

A yes vote opposed disclosing at this time the outside counsel's findings on Gingrich.
