2014 Scorecard Vote
Representative Steve Scalise (R-LA) sponsored H.R. 4795, the Promoting New Manufacturing Act, which would undermine clean air protections by exempting newly permitted industrial facilities from certain air quality standards required under the Clean Air Act. H.R. 4795 would lead to increased air pollution, threaten public health, create unclear procedural requirements for businesses, and delay the permitting process. On November 20, the House approved H.R. 4795 by a vote of 238-172 (House roll call vote 531). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
