Luetkemeyer Opposed Rail Strike Legislation
Alpha Media Moberly, Missouri

Congressman Blaine Luetkemeyer was one of the 137 in the House who voted against the bill Wednesday to avert a national rail strike.

Luetkemeyer says this is the start of a slippery slope.

Luetkemeyer does not support the rail employees asking for paid sick leave.

Five Missouri Congressmen: Democrats Cori Bush and Emanuel Cleaver, and Republicans Sam Graves, Vicki Hartzler and Ann Wagner voted for the bill. Without the action, the two sides had a December 9th deadline. 79 Republicans in all supported the measure.
