Maryland Votes No on Detainee Bill

The House of Representatives approved legislation on the treatment of detainees on a 253 to 168 vote. The entire Maryland delegation voted against the bill, including the state's two Republican representatives. They were among the seven Republicans who opposed the bill as compared to 219 Democrats (34 Democrats voted yes). Across the river in Virginia, they voted on party lines, except for Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA) who did not vote on the bill.
