2017 Scorecard Vote
Representative Kay Granger (R-TX) sponsored H.R. 3219, the Make America Secure Appropriations Act, 2018, which includes dangerous public health and environmental policy riders while also cutting critical investments in our renewable energy future. This bill attacks the government’s ability to assess the real costs of the impacts of climate change, slashes funding for clean energy and energy efficiency, and includes a radical provision exempting the administration’s repeal of the Clean Water Rule from long-standing requirements under the law. It also contains a rider that would stop the implementation of the beneficial National Ocean Policy, which allows agencies at all levels to coordinate ocean development activities. On July 27, the House approved H.R. 3219 by a vote of 235-192 (House roll call vote 435). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE. The Senate took no action on this legislation.
