Pete Sessions votes "no" to Railroad Safety, Poor Kids

Once again, Pete Sessions was among a slim minority of House members who voted against the Federal Railroad Safety Improvement Act (H.R. 2095), to prevent railroad fatalities, injuries, and hazardous materials releases and to authorize the Federal Railroad Safety Administration. The bill passed 377-38, with 16 not voting (See Roll Call 980).

Pete Sessions also helped Bush sustain his veto of the S-CHIP bill, voting against expanding the program to cover more low-income kids (See H.R. 976, Roll Call 982). The House was short 13 votes necessary to override Bush's veto.
