2017 Scorecard Vote
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 would even be packaged together with the Senate bill that turns the pristine and sacred Arctic National Wildlife Refuge into an industrial oil field. On November 16, the House approved H.R. 1 by a vote of 227-205 (House roll call vote 637). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
