Wisconsin Republicans Mark Green, Paul Ryan and Jim Sensenbrenner were among House members voting today to give Terri Schiavo's parents the right to file suit over withdrawing the food and medical treatment needed to keep her alive.

Democrat Terry Baldwin voted no.

Tom Petri, Ron Kind, Democrat from La Crosse, Gwen Moore and Dave Obey were not available for the vote early today.

The House took the Senate's lead and sent the bill to President Bush who signed the measure less than an hour later.
