WASHINGTON - Despite freshman Rep. Markwayne Mullin's public plea for bipartisanship, the Oklahoma Republican's voting record in his first few weeks in Washington has been decidedly partisan.
And in some rare cases when bipartisan legislation cleared the House, Mullin was among a small minority in opposition.
Monday, just hours after a House speech in which he quoted George Washington and talked about common bonds, Mullin voted against a bill that passed 370-28 to guide federal agencies in preparing for public health emergencies such as pandemics. Members of both parties praised the bill Monday for its bipartisan support.
Similarly, in February, he was one of only 27 House members to vote against a bill to create a network to research pediatric diseases; no additional spending was authorized.
