2018 Scorecard Vote
The Senate considered President Trump’s nomination of Jeffrey Bossert Clark to be assistant attorney general for the Environment and Natural Resources Division (ENRD) of the Department of Justice. The mission of the ENRD is to enforce the nation’s environmental laws to ensure clean air, water and land for all people in this country. Clark is an outspoken opponent of environmental and public health protections, and a well-known climate change denier. He has spent his career undermining the protections ENRD is tasked with enforcing, making him unfit to lead the division. On October 10, the Senate confirmed Clark to be assistant attorney general by a vote of 52-45 (Senate roll call vote 228). NO IS THE PRO-ENVIRONMENT VOTE.
