February 02, 1997|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

Senate: Daley for secretary of commerce

Voting 95 for and two against, the Senate confirmed William M. Daley as secretary of commerce. Daley, 48, leaves a Chicago law firm to join President Clinton's Cabinet. Opposition, though sparse, was directed at Commerce Department programs that subsidize blue-chip corporations, and at its high number of political appointees -- about 200. Daley said in his confirmation hearing that he supports reducing that number by about half.

A5 A yes vote supported Daley as commerce secretary.
