2017 Scorecard Vote

Zinke Confirmation (Interior Secretary)
Senate Roll Call Vote 75
Issues: Climate Change, Drilling, Lands/Forests, Wildlife, Other

The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of Representative Ryan Zinke (R-MT) to serve as secretary of the Department of the Interior (DOI). This position is critical to protecting our treasured natural heritage for future generations, but Zinke puts our public lands, national monuments and parks, clean air and water, and wildlife at risk. Zinke’s record on protecting America’s majestic public lands has far too often failed to meet his pro-conservation rhetoric, resulting in a 4 percent lifetime score on LCV’s National Environmental Scorecard. Zinke has refused to accept the reality of climate science and consistently put the interests of corporate polluters ahead of our air, water, lands, and wildlife. On March 1, the Senate confirmed Zinke to be secretary of the Department of the Interior by a vote of 68-31 (Senate roll call vote 75). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
