1996 Scorecard Vote

Renewable Energy Research
House Roll Call Vote 358
Issue: Clean Energy

Last year Congress reduced federal spending for research on clean sources of renewable energy -- wind, solar, geothermal, and biomass -- by 29 percent, to $275 million. The Fiscal Year 1997 Energy and Water Appropriations Bill, H.R. 3816, would have reduced that funding another 16 percent.

Reps. Dan Schaefer (R-CO), Scott Klug (R-WI), Karen Thurman (D-FL), Vic Fazio (D-CA), David Minge (D-MN), and Matt Salmon (R-AZ) offered an amendment to H.R. 3816 to restore $42.1 million for renewable energy research and development, to be paid for by cuts to the Central Arizona Project.

On July 25, 1996, the House adopted the Schaefer amendment, 279 - 135. YES is the pro-environment vote.
