Here's how some major bills fared recently in Congress and how local congressional members voted, as provided by Thomas Voting Reports. The District's congressional delegate is not permitted to vote on final passage of legislation. "NV" means "not voting."

House votes

Extended jobless benefits

For: 289/Against: 112

The House of Representatives sent President Obama a bill (HR 4851) providing about $12 billion to pay for an extension until June 2 of jobless checks for hundreds of thousands of people whose benefits expired April 4. Costing $18 billion overall, the bill also would provide short-term funding of COBRA health insurance for the jobless, transportation projects, national flood insurance, small-business loan programs and Medicare payments to doctors, among other measures.

This vote occurred as the House and Senate negotiated a separate bill that would extend eligibility for jobless benefits until the end of the year.

A yes vote was to pass the bill.
