2013 Scorecard Vote
Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) sponsored an amendment to S. Con. Res. 8, the Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Resolution, which would enact indiscriminate funding cuts that would prevent federal agencies from curbing greenhouse gas emissions that are causing climate change. As health experts and scientists have extensively documented, carbon pollution and other greenhouse gases threaten public health by causing more heat waves and intense smog, spreading infectious diseases, and bringing about stronger storms, floods, and hurricanes. On March 22, the Senate rejected the Inhofe amendment by a vote of 47-52 (Senate roll call vote 76). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
