Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Senate Passes Ethics Bill

Posted by nytexan on August 2, 2007

In an 83 to 14 vote, the Senate today joined the House and passed legislation requiring that lawmakers disclose more about their efforts to fund pet projects and raise money from lobbyists.

One of the senators who voted against the bill was of course Senator do nothing for Texas John Cornyn. The other senator who voted against it was “the bridge to nowhere” Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK), whose home was searched this week by federal agents probing alleged influence-peddling involving earmarks.

Nay votes:

Bennett (R-UT)
Burr (R-NC)
Coburn (R-OK)
Cochran (R-MS)
Cornyn (R-TX)
Craig (R-ID)
Crapo (R-ID)
DeMint (R-SC)
Ensign (R-NV)
Graham (R-SC)
Inhofe (R-OK)
Kyl (R-AZ)
Lott (R-MS)
McCain (R-AZ)
