2015 Scorecard Vote
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) sponsored S.J. Res. 23, the Congressional Review Act “Resolution of Disapproval” that would block the Environmental Protection Agency’s carbon pollution standards for new and modified power plants. S.J. Res. 23 is an extreme measure that would permanently block these clean air protections, putting our health at risk and slowing our country's transition to an economy powered by clean energy. Following its passage in the Senate, on December 1, the House approved S.J. Res. 23 by a vote of 235-188 (House roll call vote 651). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. President Obama vetoed S.J. Res. 23 on December 18.
