WASHINGTON — Here’s a look at how area members of Congress voted over the previous week:

There were two key votes and two roll call votes in the Senate this week. The House was not in session. The most important Senate vote was to confirm Christopher Hart as chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board.

Along with roll call votes, the Senate also passed a resolution (S. R. 93), sponsored by Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., to express the sense of the Senate regarding the courageous work and life of Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov and call for a swift and transparent investigation of his recent murder in Moscow.

There were no key votes in the House this week.

SENATE VOTES

Vote 1

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: The Senate has confirmed the nomination of Daniel Henry Marti to serve as intellectual property enforcement coordinator. A supporter, Sen. Patrick J. Leahy, D-Vt., said Marti, currently managing partner at a Washington, D.C., law firm, has specialized in intellectual property law in his career as a lawyer, gaining experience in trademark law and domestic and international intellectual property law. Leahy said Marti’s confirmation would fill a vacancy that has lasted for more than 18 months, allowing the IPEC office to fulfill its mission of working with law enforcement and industry to address intellectual property theft, particularly on the Internet. The vote, on March 9, was unanimous with 92 yeas.

YEAS: Collins R-Maine, King I-Maine.

Vote 2

NTSB CHAIRMAN: The Senate has confirmed the nomination of Christopher A. Hart to serve as chairman of the National Transportation Safety Board for a two-year term. A supporter, Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., said Hart, currently acting chairman of the NTSB, had a distinguished career in aviation safety, and has shown in his time as acting chairman his ability to help “make our transportation network safer, more secure, and more reliable.” The vote, on March 12, was unanimous, with 97 yeas.

YEAS: Collins R-Maine, King I-Maine.
