2014 Scorecard Vote
Representative Bradley Byrne (R-AL) offered an amendment to H.R. 4923, the Energy and Water Development and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2015, which would eliminate all funding in the bill for the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE). DOE-led clean energy programs have helped drive innovation in energy technologies while significantly reducing the costs of these technologies. The Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy supports critical solar, wind, efficiency, and clean vehicle programs that help create jobs, reduce pollution, and increase our energy security. On July 9, the House rejected the Byrne amendment by a vote of 110-310 (House roll call vote 376). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
