2017 Recent Vote
Representative Keith Ellison (D-MN) offered an amendment to H.R. 3354, the Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act, 2018, that would strike language in the bill that would needlessly delay until 2025 implementation of the stronger ozone – or smog – standard, which was finalized in October of 2015 and would help clean up the air for millions of Americans currently living in areas with unsafe air quality. On September 8, the House rejected the Ellison amendment by a vote of 194-218 (House roll call vote 476). YES IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
