Votes of all members of Congress upon important questions decided by formal roll call during the second session of the 74th Congress are shown, in geographical arrangement, in the two major tables on the following pages. A political analysis of leading Senate roll calls is given below.
Of the major legislation considered during the session, the bonus bill, the soil conservation bill, and the relief appropriation bill commanded the largest Senate majorities. The last two of these measures were opposed, however, by majorities of the Republican members present and voting. The closest votes came on the Florida ship canal. Majorities of both parties voted against the Passamaquoddy project. The Frazier-Lemke bill was defeated by Democratic votes, the Republicans dividing evenly. Only one Republican vote was cast for the tax bill on first passage, and only 4 for adoption of the conference report. Only two Republicans voted to take up the revised Guffey bill. A majority of the Republicans voted to return control of relief to the states.
