Congressman McIntyre Votes for 9/11 Commission Recommendations

Wilmington, NC – Congressman Mike McIntyre joined eight other members of North Carolina's delegation yesterday who voted to adopt recommendations by the bi-partisan 9/11 Commission.

In a released statement McIntyre said he voted for the bill because it will enhance homeland security.

One recommendation calls for scanning every container of cargo shipped into the country by 2012.

Congressman Walter Jones also voted in support of the bill.

The House of Representatives votes Wednesay on whether to raise the minimum wage to $7.25 over a two year period.
