2016 Scorecard Vote
Senator Tom Udall (D-NM) offered an amendment to S. 2012, the Energy Policy Modernization Act of 2015, which would require the secretary of the Treasury to develop a plan to issue Clean Energy Victory Bonds. These bonds would aim to raise as much as $50 billion and would be used to finance clean energy projects, including wind, solar, advanced vehicles, and fuel cells. Rapid deployment of clean energy technology is the best way to fight climate change. On April 19, the Senate rejected the Udall amendment by a vote of 50-47 (60 votes were needed for passage; Senate roll call vote 52). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
