How they voted


HR 2353 — A two-month extension of the nation’s transportation bill, which allows federal dollars to continue to flow to highway projects. In the past eight years, there have been more than 30 short-term extensions of the highway bill because lawmakers cannot agree on whether to raise the 18.4 cent-per-gallon gasoline tax, which pays for road construction. As of Friday, the Senate had yet to approve its own version.

Passed: 387-35


Yes: Chabot, Gibbs, Johnson, Joyce, Latta, Stivers, Tiberi, Turner, and Wenstrup.

No: Jordan and Renacci.


Yes: Beatty, Fudge, Kaptur, and Ryan.

By custom, House Speaker John Boehner does not vote on most bills.


HR 1314 — A vote to end delaying tactics and clear the way for final passage of a bill that would expand President Barack Obama’s authority to complete negotiations on a 12-nation free-trade agreement in the Pacific rim. Supporters of the measure needed 60 votes to end delaying tactics.

Passed: 62-38

Yes: Portman

No: Brown
