Stewart votes against, Bishop, Love vote for disaster aid, debt limit increase
SALT LAKE CITY — Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah, voted against a package Friday to provide more than $15 billion in disaster aid for Hurricane Harvey victims, raise the debt ceiling and fund the government for three months.
Utah’s other two Republican House members, Reps. Rob Bishop and Mia Love, voted for the bill, which passed 316-90. All the no votes came from Republicans.
“This wasn’t a vote for hurricane relief. I already voted for emergency funding on Wednesday. I voted no because we once again have abandoned our military and failed to address our national debt,” Stewart said in a statement.
