2017 Recent Vote
Representative Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) sponsored H.R. 2883, the Promoting Cross-Border Energy Infrastructure Act, a bill that would effectively exempt cross-border pipelines from the National Environmental Policy Act. H.R. 2883 would narrow environmental review to the cross-border segment of proposed pipelines, and it eliminates the need to justify these pipelines as in the national interest. H.R. 2883 undermines the federal government’s ability to fully assess the environmental impacts of proposed pipelines. On July 19, the House approved H.R. 2883 by a vote of 254-175 (House roll call vote 398). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
