MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont's U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy has cast his 14,000th roll call vote.
Leahy's office says just six other senators in history have reached that milestone.
And no other sitting senator, except for Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii, has cast so many votes.
The vote came Wednesday afternoon on a bill about extending tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year.
Leahy, a Democrat, joined the Senate in 1975.
