        I've spotted another <action> that should be a <vote>...

        In http://www.govtrack.us/data/us/111/bills/h3962.xml -

        <action datetime="2010-06-24T19:09:00-04:00"><text>On motion that the
        House suspend the rules and concur in the Senate amendments Agreed to
        by the Yeas and Nays: (2/3 required): 417 - 1 (Roll no.
        393).</text><reference label="text as House agreed to Senate
        amendments" ref="CR H4829-4835"/></action>

        This was originally the House's health care bill that barely passed in
        November, which has now been amended to be something much smaller and
        somewhat related. It passed the Senate unanimously, and the <action>
        in question is the House re-passing the amended bill by roll call.
