2018 Scorecard Vote
The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of Britt Grant to be U.S. circuit court judge for the Eleventh Circuit. Circuit courts are often the ultimate arbiters of highly significant cases, including those involving environmental protections, and it is critical that the judges confirmed to serve lifetime appointments on these courts are qualified, non-partisan, and committed to treating parties fairly. As solicitor general for the state of Georgia, Grant repeatedly fought to weaken the Endangered Species Act, one of our nation’s most successful conservation programs. She has also sought to weaken the Voting Rights Act, and opposed LGBTQ equality and immigrant rights. Grant’s partisan and anti-environment record are disqualifying for a judicial nominee. On July 31, the Senate confirmed Grant to the Eleventh Circuit by a vote of 52-46 (Senate roll call vote 174). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
