Anti-Environmental Tax Bill That Drills the Arctic Refuge
Senate Roll Call Vote 303
Issues: Other, Drilling

Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX) sponsored H.R. 1, the Tax Cut and Jobs Act. This legislation sells out key environmental priorities to deliver a massive tax cut for millionaires, billionaires, and huge corporations. The bill would raise taxes on middle class communities across the country; harm people nationwide by likely resulting in cuts to safeguards for our air, water, lands and wildlife; and put our clean energy future at risk while maintaining giveaways to fossil fuel interests. In addition to the many harmful provisions, the bill even turns the pristine and sacred Arctic National Wildlife Refuge into an industrial oil field. On December 2, the Senate approved H.R. 1 by a vote of 51-49 (Senate roll call vote 303). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
