I heard this on the news, that Congress amended the National Trails System Act to include an historic route "taken by the armies of General George Washington and Count Rochambeau between Newport, Rhode Island, and Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781 and 1782." This is one of those votes I consider to be a "no-brainer" vote, one agreeable to most patriotic Americans. The majority of Republicans voted "yes," as did Democrats. The bill passed 345 - 69, with Pete Sessions as one of the nay-sayers.
Doesn't it seem odd that Pete Sessions, who is so involved with the Boy Scouts of America, would vote against a national trail?
