CONGRESSIONAL ROLL CALL

How they voted

How members of Congress voted on key bills and amendments in the past week.

HOUSE

Appropriations resolution

The House rejected a motion to include higher Medicare payment rates to doctors as part of the continuing 2003 spending resolution.

Proponents said that doctors are being forced to shut down services and deny care to Medicare patients because of high costs and inadequate government reimbursements. Opponents argued that the continuing resolution was the wrong forum to deal with the issue. The vote was 195 yes to 215 no.

YES

Ohio: Tim Ryan, D-17th, and Ted Strickland, D-6th

NO

Ohio: Steven C. LaTourette, R-14th.

Pa.: Phil English, R-3rd, and Melissa A. Hart, R-4th.

Columbia astronauts

The House approved, by a vote of 404-0, a resolution to express the House's condolences to the families of the crew aboard the Columbia space shuttle.

YES

Ohio: LaTourette, Ryan and Strickland.

Pa.: English and Hart.

SENATE

Honoring Columbia

The Senate also approved a resolution to commemorate the Columbia astronauts. The vote was 95 to 0.

YES

Ohio: Mike DeWine, R, and George V. Voinovich, R.

Pa.: Rick Santorum, R, and Arlen Specter, R.
