2005 Scorecard Vote

Natural Gas Facilities
House Roll Call Vote 131
Issue: Dirty Energy

Gas companies are seeking to increase the number of liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals on U.S. coasts. These facilities can pose substantial risks for human health and the environment. For that reason, state and local governments have sometimes intervened in the debates over where these facilities are sited.

In its original form, H.R. 6, the energy bill, contained a provision that preempted all state authority and left the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) the main arbiter of siting decisions. Representative Michael Castle (R-DE) introduced an amendment to strike the provision and restore state and local authority. On April 21, 2005, House Amendment 30 was rejected by a 194-237 vote (House roll call vote 131). YES is the pro-environment vote.
