House Vote

Congress is divided in its sentiments about the war in Kosovo. When asked to approve a non-binding resolution supporting the current air war on Yugoslavia, the House responded with a tie vote, 213 to 213. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert announced his support for the resolution, but other members of the Republican leadership worked actively against it. In the end 31 Republicans voted to back the air strikes, while 26 Democrats deserted their president. NPR's Brian Naylor reports.
