Pete Sessions votes against auto industry loan

From Congress.Org:
The House passed H.R. 7321, to authorize financial assistance to eligible automobile manufacturers, by a recorded vote of 237 ayes to 170 noes with 1 voting "present", Roll No. 690.

Pete Sessions was among the House members who voted against the bill, in what turned out to be pretty much of a standard party-line vote. Only 32 Republicans voted in favor of the bill, with 20 Democrats crossing party lines to vote against it.

One Republican voted "present," and the "not voting" members consisted of 11 Democrats and 15 Republicans.
