The "Area Votes in Congress" column in Sunday's Inquirer listed an incorrect bill number and roll call for Thursday's House vote on a measure that would release $96 billion in Iraq and Afghanistan war funding in two installments, with the first portion covering costs until Aug. 1.
The bill, HR 2206, actually passed the House, 221-205, with Philadelphia-area lawmakers voting as follows:
Voting yes: Robert E. Andrews (D., N.J.), Tim Holden (D., Pa.), Patrick Murphy (D., Pa.), Allyson Schwartz (D., Pa.) and Joe Sestak (D., Pa.).
Voting no: Michael N. Castle (R., Del.), Charles W. Dent (R., Pa.), Jim Gerlach (R., Pa.), Frank A. LoBiondo (R., N.J.), Joseph R. Pitts (R., Pa.), H. James Saxton (R., N.J.) and Christopher H. Smith (R., N.J.).
Not voting: Robert A. Brady (D., Pa.) and Chaka Fattah (D., Pa.).
The 302-120 roll call that appeared in the column under the header "War funding" was for HR 2207, a separate bill providing about $4.5 billion in emergency domestic spending.
The area delegation's vote on that measure was as follows:
Voting yes: Andrews, Gerlach, Holden, LoBiondo, Saxton, Schwartz and Sestak.
Voting no: Castle, Dent, Murphy, Pitts and Smith.
Not voting: Brady and Fattah.
A story Sunday about tape-recorded telephone calls warning Camden residents not to take money for voting wrongly identified the source of those calls. Neither the U.S. Attorney's Office nor the U.S. Department of Justice had any role in the phone calls. See related story, Page B3.
