WASHINGTON (AP) - Ohio's congressional delegation voted with the majority to pass the agreement that avoided the so-called fiscal cliff of middle-class tax increases and spending cuts.
All five House Democrats from Ohio voted in favor as the measure passed 257-167 Tuesday night. Ohio's House Republicans split, six voting in favor and seven against.
That means more Republican legislators from the Buckeye State voted in favor of the bill than Democratic ones.
Those voting in favor were Democrats Marcia Fudge, Marcy Kaptur, Dennis Kucinich, Tim Ryan and Betty Sutton, and Republicans John Boehner, Bill Johnson, Steve LaTourette, Robert Latta, Steve Stivers, and Pat Tiberi.
Those voting against were Republicans Steve Austria, Steve Chabot, Bob Gibbs, Jim Jordan, Jim Renacci, Jean Schmidt and Michael Turner.
