CT Reps Vote – May 8, 2006

I’m not so sure I know why DeLauro voted no on this bill: Lobbying Accountability and Transparency Act. It was a close vote at 217-213, 3 Not Voting but where’s the bad in making the law making process more transparent? Was something attached to the bill? Did someone add on a few hundred thousand small fries?

transparency act mapThough, looking at the map of votes. Something was definitely strange in the bill. Nearly all of the north east and the west coast voted NO. Hmm. Rosa… Care to offer some insight into this? I’ll be your voice to the people.

The other guys (Dodd and Lieberman) approved 109 BILLion bucks for Iraq military operations and hurricane relief. That’s 100 nine BILLion bucks. Show me the money!
