Hello, I have two question in here:
The measure, which formally rebuked the president’s comments, was approved on a mostly partisan-line vote of 240 to 187.
What is the 'measure' here? What is meant by this?
Also, in the very same article there is:
Just four Republicans – representatives Will Hurd of Texas, Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania, Fred Upton of Michigan, and Susan Brooks of Indiana, joined Democrats in approving the resolution.
My question here is: Can we say from Texas, from Pennsylvania, from Michigan and from Indiana? Why is 'of' used here?
Thank you guys :)
