How Ohioans voted last week
Readers have told us they want to know how local and Ohio members of the U.S. House and Senate are voting on major issues. In most Monday editions, we will publish a list of votes.
Local southwest Ohio members in bold.
HR 1765 – A bill that would end the furloughs of air traffic controllers by the Federal Aviation Administration. Those furloughs, caused by the automatic spending cuts that went into effect on March 1, prompted long waits by passengers at airports. Because the Senate passed the same bill by a voice vote last week, the measure now goes to President Barack Obama for his signature.
Yes: Chabot, Gibbs, Johnson, Joyce, Latta, Renacci, Stivers, Tiberi, and Turner.
No: Jordan and Wenstrup.
Yes: Kaptur, and Ryan.
Not voting: Beatty
* As speaker, John Boehner does not customarily vote.
