2015 Scorecard Vote
Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) offered an amendment to S.1, the Keystone XL Pipeline Act, which would set a goal for the nation to get 25 percent of its electricity from renewable sources by 2025. This policy builds on the proven success states have seen in setting similar policies and would help the United States lead in the global clean energy economy. A strong national renewable electricity standard would create jobs, protect consumers, and reduce pollution. On January 29, the Senate rejected the Udall amendment by a vote of 45-53 (Senate roll call vote 44). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
