On April 24, 2008, Congressman Steve Chabot’s Motion to Recommit allowed the members of Congress to vote on whether an amendment to provide for the Delta Queen exemption could be attached to another bill. If only seven of the votes against had been convinced to vote in favor, the Delta Queen exemption could have been resolved. JUST SEVEN VOTES!

Also, 28 members did not even bother to vote. Even more outrageous, the representatives of many more river communities – who cherish the historical significance of the boat and the economic tourism boost it brings to their communities – also voted against the amendment. Many of these may have voted against the amendment to avoid angering powerful Committee Chairman James Oberstar, or out of simply believing Oberstar’s misinformation about the Delta Queen’s safety concerns. To find out how your representative voted, look below.
