2011 Scorecard Vote

Clean Water Safeguards
House Roll Call Vote 135
Issue: Water

Representative David McKinley (R-WV) offered this amendment to H.R. 1, the Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act of 2011, to prevent the EPA from continuing to use its authority under the Clean Water Act to prohibit or restrict projects that would have an "unacceptable adverse effect" on water, fish, and wildlife.  The EPA has reserved this authority for extraordinarily environmentally-destructive projects, using it only 13 times in the entire 39-year history of the Clean Water Act.  On February 19, the House adopted the McKinley amendment by a vote of 240-182 (House roll call vote 135).  NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.  Fortunately, the language in this amendment was not included in the compromise appropriations bill that funded the government through the end of FY11, H.R. 1473, which the President signed into law on April 15.
