In Kansas, it was a party line vote:
Nay KS-1 Moran, Jerry [R]
Aye KS-2 Boyda, Nancy [D]
Aye KS-3 Moore, Dennis [D]
Nay KS-4 Tiahrt, Todd [R]
The bill, HR 1113, is a nonbinding resolution “celebrating the role of mothers in the United States and supporting the goals and ideals of Mother?s Day.” The vote was on a motion to send the bill back for reconsideration and revision in committee.
Tiahrt rose in protest, demanding first the vote on his motion to recommit, and requesting that the votes be recorded, because “because I?m sure every member wants their mother to know that they have supported the goals of Mother?s Day.” He then joined his colleagues in voting against the measure.
I’m sure Donald Betts will have fun with this.
