2015 Scorecard Vote
Representative Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) offered an amendment to H.R. 348, the Responsibly and Professionally Invigorating Development (RAPID) Act of 2015, which would prevent continued consideration or the selection of alternatives to projects submitted for review under the National Environmental Policy Act that do not adequately address the risks of wildfires, flooding, or other extreme weather events fueled by climate change. The amendment would ensure that government-funded projects are resilient to climate change’s impacts. On September 25, the House rejected the Lowenthal amendment by a vote of 170-228 (House roll call vote 508). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
