2015 Scorecard Vote
Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) offered an amendment to S.1, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, which undermines the United States’ ability to encourage other countries to address climate change and would be a significant setback in the global fight against climate change. The Blunt amendment seeks to undermine the November 2014 U.S.-China announcement that demonstrated both countries’ commitment to tackling this challenge and builds momentum toward a global solution to the climate crisis. On January 22, the Senate rejected the Blunt amendment by a vote of 51-46 (60 votes were needed for passage; Senate roll call vote 20). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
